PRIEST: Pray for us, O Great St. Gerard!
PEOPLE: That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ!
PRIEST: Let us pray:
ALL: O Almighty and Eternal Father, Who, in Thy all-wise Providence, has deigned to raise up St. Gerard to be the glorious protector of the mother and her unborn child: grant Thee, we beseech thee, through the powerful intercession of this, Thy servant, that all the diabolical forces of anti-life may be destroyed from the face of the earth forever; that so the Christian family may once more flourish to the praise and eternal glory of Thy Holy Name. This we ask through the merits of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee and the Holy Ghost -- God forever and ever. Amen.
Imprimi Potest: John N. McCormick, C.SS.R. Provincial Superior of St. Louis, June 15, 1957. Imprimatur: Joseph E. Ritter, Archbishop of St. Louis, May 21, 1957
