Take 2 with Jerry & Debbie

Have You Had a “Miraculous Conception?”


Jerry’s mother could not conceive for many years. She made many sacrifices and prayed unceasingly to St. Gerard. After conceiving and bearing his sister, Mary, Jerry was next to come along. In thanksgiving, his parents named him after St. Gerard, a patron of expectant mothers and those having difficulty conceiving children. It’s a painful reality that in God’s mysterious design some couples never achieve pregnancy, in spite of an ardent desire and rigorous attempts to find a solution to their infertility. Others, also by God’s unfathomable providence, seem to receive help from above, often after praying to St. Gerard or many of the other saints. On Tuesday, tell us about your experience of receiving what might only be considered a “miraculous” conception.

  1. Jerry and Debbie;
    I have been listening to your program for approximately 3 years. My Gayle and I came into the Church on the Feast of St. Irenaeus in 2017. I am prompted to share my Miraculous Conception story. Last Thanksgiving I was talking with my sister-in-law about her eldest daughter Alaina. Alainia and her husband have been try to get pregnant for 3 years. As it turns out Alaina has a deformity in her uterus. Well my sister-in-law was getting concerned that if Alaina couldn’t conceive her marriage my “be on the rocks.” At that point I found and began the first of a series novenas to St. Gerard. After Christmas I began another one and on Saturday of the week I received a call from Alaina. She was pregnant! Thanks be to God. On Sept 10th Alaina delivered a healthy robust 7# 3oz baby girl who is wonderfully healthy. According to her doctor she had a 2 in 100 chance of having a healthy child.


    • Thanks, Ken, for this amazing St. Gerard story. One of so many beautiful tributes this great saint. May he continue to do such great miracles on behalf of God from heaven!
