Novena for Motherhood


I have recently joined Catholic Answers and I found this in one of the forums, and I thought it is something that should be passed around. Originally the intention was for "For God to send healthy babies to all the couples on CAF", but I changed it just a bit.


For those of you who are unfamiliar with a Novena, it is a prayer (or several prayers) that are said for nine days. The prayer changes with each intention.


Most Blessed Trinity, I, Your child, thank You for all the gifts and privileges which You granted to St. Gerard, especially for those virtues with which You adorned him on earth and the glory which You now impart to him in heaven. Accomplish Your work, Oh Lord, so that Your kingdom may come about on earth. Through his merits, in union with those of Jesus and Mary, grant me the grace for which I ask...(For God to send healthy babies to all the couples around the world trying to conceive) And you, my powerful intercessor, St. Gerard, always so ready to help those who have recourse to you, pray for me. Come before the throne of Divine Mercy and do not leave without being heard. To you I confide this important and urgent affair...(For God to send healthy babies to all the couples around the world trying to conceive)Graciously take my cause in hand and do not let me end this novena without having experienced in some way the effects of your intercession.

Amen.
