The front of the holy card shows a woman holding an infant up to St. Gerard for a blessing. The back has a prayer which reads in part "Beseech the Master of Life, from whom all paternity proceedeth to render me faithful in offering, that I may raise my children to God in this life.....". The card is made in Italy and features famed Fratelli-Bonello art with gold trim. The card measures 2-1/2 by 4-1/2 inches and is laminated for protection to give the card a long period of use. St. Gerard belonged to the Redemptorist order and was a model for lay brothers because of his chastity, obedience and selfless service. He was allowed to counsel religious women because of his great piety and extraordinary wisdom. His prayers were said to have miraculously saved a pregnant woman so he has become the patron saint of motherhood and children. The St. Gerard holy card could be given with a shower gift or with a new baby gift to someone who is expecting a baby.
