"Novenas in honor of various saints are moments of shared friendships with the court of heaven."
This novena is in honor of the beloved Saint Gerard Majella. Saint Gerard is known as the mother's saint, and many have prayed to him in time of difficulty. This pamphlet will place in your hands a series of meditations that can serve as a novena to Saint Gerard that can be accomplished in a single day of prayer, or spread over nine days or nine months.
