Story & Symbolism:
St. Gerard Majella is the patron saint of expectant mothers. He was born to a family of seven in Muro, Italy, in 1726. Majella came from poverty with a great deal of empathy for the poor. As he was only 12 when his father died, he was forced to grow up quickly. Shortly after his father died, his mother sent him off to live with his uncle and study to be a tailor, like his father.
