Gerard Majella was devoted to the service of God. As a Redemptorist lay brother he served as a sacristan, gardener, cook, carpenter, porter, and many other humble positions. He was a kind and gentle man, always willing to help others. God blessed St. Gerard Majella with special charisms and miraculous cures. His feast day is celebrated on October 16. He is the patron saint of lay brothers and expectant mothers.


Saints are real-life heroes of faith who inspire us by their virtues to become more like Christ. In the Saints and Me! series, these beautifully illustrated early-reader books tell the real stories of saints that come to life and connect with today’s children aged 4 to 9.
