Full of Grace Creations Monday Morning Giveaway: Saint Gerard of Majella Chaplet

It's (finally!) time for another Full of Grace Creations Monday Morning Giveaway! This morning's giveaway is a Saint Gerard of Majella Chaplet! The winner can decide between a pink chaplet like the one shown here, a chaplet with beads like this one, or this one (the silver), or even substitute freshwater pearls (white, pink or blue!) Here's a quick look at the prayers that accompany the chaplet:

Here's the prayers the accompany the chaplet:

This chaplet is composed of a nine-bead configuration (3 groups of 3) with a St. Gerard medal on one end and a Holy Family medal on the other.

There are two sets of prayer you may use for this chaplet.

One is for expectant mothers followed by:
3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Marys, and 3 Glory Be's
The one for motherhood followed by:
3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Marys, and 3 Glory Be's

"Great St. Gerard, beloved servant of Jesus Christ, you are a perfect imitator of our meek and humble Saviour, and a devoted child of the Mother of God. Enkindle in my heart one spark of that heavenly fire of charity that glowed in yours and made you a beacon of love.

Glorious St. Gerard, like your divine Master you bore without murmur or complaint the calumnies of wicked men when falsely accused of crime, and you have been raised up by God as the patron and protector of expectant mothers. Preserve me from dangers, and shield the child I now carry. Pray that my baby may be brought safely to the light of day and receive the sacrament of baptism."

"Most Blessed Trinity, I, Your child, thank You for all the gifts and privledges which You granted to St. Gerard, especially for those virtues with which you adorned him on earth and the glory which you now impart to him in heaven. Accomplish Your work, O Lord, so that Your Kingdom may come about on earth. Through his merits, in union with those of Jesus and Mary, grant me the grace for which I ask...

And you, my powerful intercessor, St. Gerard, always so ready to help those who have recourse to you, pray for me. Come before the Throne of Divine Mercy and do not leave without being heard. To you I confide this important and urgent affair....

Graciously take my cause in hand and do not let me end this novena without having experienced in some way the effects of your intercession. Amen."
