  • Gerard Majellas name is familiar to many Catholics. They have relied on his prayers at difficult times, especially while trying to conceive a baby, to bring it to full term, and when faced with the great life-giving mysteries of labour and birth. Many carry his name through life. But sometimes those who pray through Gerards intercession know relatively little about him. Even the holy pictures of Gerard did him no favours.

     

    This book is an introduction to Gerards life, especially for those who might not be familiar with it. The text and images offer an insight into the reality of Gerards world, allowing the reader to see the places he would have known, some of the objects he might have seen and some of the people who were part of his story. This book is also and invitation to pray with Gerard. The appendix suggests some ways of using it as an aid to reflective prayer or meditation as well as giving some prayers to or by gerard himself.
