Almighty and eternal God,
I come to thank you for all the blessings
with which you favoured St. Gerard while he was on earth
and for the glory with which You have crowned him in heaven.
For the greater honour of Your Most Holy Name
and for the edification of the Church,
glorify St. Gerard before men,
and through his merits in union with those of Jesus and Mary,
grant me the favours I now ask.
And you, St. Gerard, my powerful patron,
who have always helped those who prayed to you,
intercede for me before the throne of God.
Listen to my fervent prayers, graciously accept them,
and according to God’s Holy will let me experience
the effects of your powerful intercession.
