O great Saint Gerard, beloved servant
of Jesus Christ, perfect imitator of
your meek and humble Savior, and
devoted child of Mother of God,
enkindle within my heart one spark
of that heavenly fire of charity which
glowed in your heart and made you
an angel of love.

O glorious Saint Gerard, because
when falsely accused of crime, you
did bear, like your Divine Master,
without murmur or complaint, the
calumnies of wicked men, you have
been raised up by God as the patron
and protector of expectant mothers.

Preserve me from danger and from
the excessive pains accompanying
childbirth, and shield the child which
I now carry, that it may see the light
of day and receive the purifying and
life-giving waters of baptism through
Jesus Christ our Lord.
