Feast Day October 17th
St. Gerard Family League Prayer
Great protector of the family, St Gerard,* we ask your prayers for all parents,* that they may receive the grace to live in the love of God* and bring up their children to know and love him with all their hearts.*
We ask you to pray* that those who take the lives of unborn innocents* and attack the dignity of parenthood* may come to see the error of their ways,* and that all may value the holiness of Christian family life.*
God, our loving Father,* your life gives life to the world.* Bless and make holy all human love,* especially the life-giving love of fathers and mothers.* May your love fill the hearts and homes of all families,* so that the world may enjoy the peace and happiness promised by your Son,* Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.*
