Saint Gerard Majella (1726-1755)
One of God’s great gifts to the Church
We live in an area of Arkansas which is strongly Catholic. It’s a small pocket of Catholicism in a predominantly Protestant state. But the Catholics here have a great devotion to St. Gerard Majella. Brother Joseph’s mom, Marie, prayed to St. Gerard before the birth of all ten children. One of her children is named Geralyn, after St. Gerard. We have another strong Catholic family in town who is very devoted to our Holy Family Mission. Their son’s construction company built the replica of the Holy House, and the Conference Center. His name is Gerry, after St. Gerard. And it goes on, all over Conway County in Arkansas. And Arkansas is a really small state. But in speaking to people from other states in the Union, the situation is the same. In small pockets, usually rural areas all over our country, St. Gerard Majella is a strong intercessor.
