Sterling silver St. Gerard medal with 18” chain. Dimension: 5/8" diameter.
St. Gerard is the benefactor of mothers, children, and childbirth. His reputation comes from a story where, after departing from a visit to the Pirofalo family, one of the daughters noticed he left behind a handkerchief and tried to return it. Gerard told her to keep it, since it could be useful to her one day. During a dangerous delivery years later, she held the handkerchief, which kept the child safe throughout the process. St. Gerard is also known for protecting the falsely accused.
Gerard is also patron of pregnant women, women who wish to conceive and of mothers.
