St. Gerard Majella: The Wonder-Worker and Patron of Expectant Mothers Rev. Fr. Edward Saint-Omer, C.SS.R.
St. Gerard Majella, "Patron of Expectant Mothers," is a major Saint of the Catholic Church. Though he died of tuberculosis at only 29 and was only a lay brother in the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer (Redemptorists), he achieved great sanctity - such that his superiors attested that he had not only not committed any mortal sins, but that they could not detect that he had ever been guilty of any sin at all!
