6But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.
7And these things give in charge, that they may be blameless.Next Verse 8
St. Gerard, who, like the Saviour, loved children so tenderly and by your prayers freed many from disease and even death, listen to us who are pleading for our sick child. We thank God for the great gift of our son/daughter and ask Him to restore our child to health if such be His holy will. This favour, we beg of you through your love for all children and mothers.
