 General Description:

Shot on location in Italy, Ireland, and the United States, this exciting DVD brings to life the extraordinary passion and devotion of St. Gerard, from his earliest days when he played with the baby Jesus, to his all too brief  life as a Redemptorist religious, when he performed so many miracles that he became known as the "Wonder Worker", and patron of expectant mothers.

Profile

    Son of a tailor who died when the boy was 12, leaving the family in poverty. Gerard tried to join the Capuchins, but his health prevented it He was accepted as a Redemptorist lay brother serving his congregation as sacristan, gardener, porter, infirmarian, and tailor. Miracle worker.

    When falsely accused by a pregnant woman of being the father of her child, he retreated to silence; she later recanted and cleared him, and thus began his association as patron of all aspects of pregnancy. Reputed to bilocate and read consciences. His last will consisted of the following small note on the door of his cell: “Here the will of God is done, as God wills, and as long as God wills.”
