Saint Gerard, spotless lily of purity, by the angelic virtue and thy wonderful innocence of life thou didst receive from the Infant Jesus and His Immaculate Mother, sweet pledges of tenderest love, grant, I beseech thee, that I may ever strive in my lifelong fight, and thus win the crown that awaits the brave and the true.
Recite the Hail Mary (nine times)

Response: That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let Us Pray
O Almighty and Everlasting God, who didst draw to thyself Saint Gerard, even from his tenderest years, making him conformable to the Image of Thy Crucified Son, grant we beseech Thee, that imitating his example, we may be made like unto the same Divine Image, through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
