Prayer of St. Gemma Galgani to obtain a desired grace


PRAYERS

Here is a prayer composed by St. Gemma Galgani to obtain a desired grace:
Behold me at Your most holy feet, O dear Jesus, to manifest to you my gratitude for the continual favors which You have bestowed upon me, and still wish to bestow upon me. As many times as I have invoked You, O Jesus, You have made me content; I have often had recourse to You and You have always consoled me. How shall I express myself to You, dear Jesus? I thank you! Yet one more grace I desire of you, O my God, if it would be pleasing to You (here mention your request). If you were not omnipotent, I would not make this request. O Jesus, have pity on me. May your most holy will be done in all things"
-Prayer composed by St Gemma
________________
Another prayer from Saint Gemma to Jesus:
O my crucified God, behold me at Your feet; do not cast me out, now that I appear before You as a sinner. I have offended You exceedingly in the past, my Jesus, but it shall be so no longer. Before You, O Lord, I place all my sins; I have now considered Your own sufferings and see how great is the worth of that Precious Blood that flows from Your veins. O my God, at this hour close Your eyes to my want of merit, and since You have been pleased to die for my sins, grant me forgiveness for them all, that I may no longer feel the burden of my sins, for this burden, dear Jesus, oppresses me beyond measure. Assist me, my Jesus, for I desire to become good whatsoever it may cost; take away, destroy, utterly root out all that You find in me contrary to Your holy will. At the same time, I pray to You Lord Jesus, to enlighten me that I may be able to walk in Your holy light.
Amen.
--Prayer composed by St Gemma

Prayer to St Gemma asking for her intercession
Oh holy Gemma, I am near you, help me to pray. You know what I and those near me need; look after my urgent needs and my spiritual and material wants. You take care of them! I confide in you and entrust all to your loving care.
Offer up to Jesus that tender and constant care that you bore Him here on earth.
Oh holy Gemma, you who physically suffered all the pains of the Passion of Jesus, I beseech of you the grace to meditate on and live the Passion of Jesus, and the sufferings of Holy Mary. Pray that I will be able to walk in the path of humility, simplicity, love and sacrifice, fulfilling at all times and in all ways, the holy will of God. Let me live united with Jesus, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and you, for all eternity. Amen.
(taken from a St Gemma Holy Card)
________________
Very popular prayer to St Gemma found on the back of many Passionist Holy cards

Oh St. Gemma, how compassionate was your love for those in distress, and how great your desire to help them. Help me, also in my present necessity and obtain for me the favor I humbly implore, if it be profitable for my soul.

The numerous miracles and the wonderful favors attributed to your intercession instill in me the confidence that you can help me. Pray to Jesus, your Spouse, for me. Show Him the stigmata which His love has given you. Remind Him of the blood which flowed from these same wounds, the excruciating pain which you have suffered and the tears which you have shed for the salvation of souls. Place all this as your precious treasure in a chalice of love and Jesus will hear you. Amen.

-St Gemma, pray for us!

Prayer to St Gemma for purity -assistance against against temptations
Gemma's mother taught her from and early age to kneel on her hands and pray 3 Hail Mary's every day, asking the Blessed Mother to obtain for her the grace of purity. At the end of her life, nearing death, a companion went to check on her and found her kneeling on her hands, saying the 3 Hail Mary's for purity. Even at the end of her life she did not abandon this holy practice. Therefore, we can confidently invoke her for assistance against temptations of impurity.

Oh bright flower of heaven, St Gemma, mirror of purity and penance, obtain for us the grace of purity and help us against all temptations of the flesh. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

You are doing a wonderful job with this website. Thank you for the prayers that you have put up.
I also found a Novena of St. Gemma, would you like me to send it to you??

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi Sehrish,
Thank you for your kind comment and for your excellent suggestion about adding a Novena to St Gemma.

I just added a Novena today per your suggestion.
Thanks and may God bless you and yours,

This website is yet another tangible proof how much our dear LORD loves us.

St Gemma Galgani, pray for us!

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi DLitong,
It is a pleasure to meet you.

Yes, we see how much Jesus loves us when we read the writings of Saint Gemma. God's infinite love for us shines through them. It one of the things that makes the lives of the Saints so attractive.

Thank you for your comment.

Sharon said...

Please, I beg of you all to pray for my daughter, Missi, for healing for her back. She has suffered the pain for so long, not knowing it was from Lupus which had deteriorated the bones in her thoracic area causing much pain & loss of some bodily functions as well as atrophied her kidneys. Please ask St. Gemma to help Missi get the right dr. to perform the delicate surgery, which if done wrong, can cause paralysis or blindness. I thank you SO very much for your Godsent prayers and will keep you all in MY prayers as well. Thank you & God bless you all!

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi Sharon,


I printed out your message and placed it beneath our St Gemma statue and her relics. I will begin a Novena to St Gemma today for Missy.

I also have a daughter named Melissa, whom we affectionately call "Missy".

I pray that God may guide and help you and your family, and draw you ever closer to Himself.

Union in the hearts of Jesus and Mary,
Glenn Dallaire

DLitong said...

Yes, Sharon, we'll pray for Missy, that through the intercession of St Gemma, she will recover and be restored to full health, and that the LORD will be glorified in His Work through Missy.

St Paul said that God did not spare even His own Son, our LORD Jesus Christ, to show His love for us, so that it begs the question, what else will the LORD not give us?

Have faith, Sharon, and through the prayers of St Gemma, Missy will be healed.

Holly Hall said...

Hello Glenn,

What a wonderful job you have done with this site! I thank God for leading me to it; I was actually using Google to search for links to the mercy of God to use in a novel I am writing. This was one of the first links to pop up. I was wondering if you could pray to St. Gemma to help me regain my faith, as I have wavered between keeping it and losing it, as I am dealing with a domestic violence abuser (my ex) who stole my daughter from me when she was barely three days old, and deprived her of Baptism and the Sacraments. He has gotten away with this for seven years, and sometimes I feel like losing hope. He has also gotten away with stealing my hard-earned money and Social Security income (the latter of which I get for my hearing disability). I am currently in school trying to get my Bachelor's Degree for Business so I can get a decent career to get off of Social Security for good and care for my child and myself without any interference from anyone. In addition, since I don't drive, I am discouraged by the almost "impossible" task of getting back to Holy Mass. Thank you so much for this site again; may Jesus, Mary, and Joseph bless you abundantly in time and in eternity!

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi Holly,
Thanks so much for your kind email. It is really nice to meet you.
And, thanks for sharing a bit of your story with me. You really have some heavy crosses to bear!....but you can be sure that Jesus is close to you because He is always very close to those who suffer. It sounds like perhaps your husband really needs your prayers. When you pray for him, what value such prayer has in the eyes of God!...to pray for those who have hurt us...surely it is not easy, but it brings down a shower of blessings upon us and the one that we are praying for.

The novel that you are writing sounds interesting as it touches upon the mercy of God. Since we are in the midst of Lent it is certainly a great time to contemplate the mercy and love of God. Love and Mercy....God's greatest attributes! Jesus crucified hanging on the cross is truly God's love and mercy personified...God who became man to suffer a horrible, torturous death out of His infinite love and mercy for us! When we have doubts or uncertainties we should look at Jesus hanging on the Cross and we should kiss His holy wounds.

I pray through the intercession of St Gemma for you and yours. Please pray for my poor soul also...

May God bless you and yours.
~St Gemma, pray for us!

I'm not really sure how I stumbled

She's had a lot of turmoil and trauma in her life and needs healing in her soul as well. My other daughter Cara has similar needs, and is also in need of prayer. I will pray for Missi. Carolyn

My daughter Melissa will be entering a residential treatment center on Monday for drug addiction. I believe that the Novena to St. Gemma has influenced this process, because we've tried many times in the past to get help for her, to no avail. Please continue to pray that she will be safe and will get the help she needs. Mainly, that she will turn to the Lord.

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi Carolyn,
Thank you for your message.

I also have a daughter named Melissa, age 16.

I pray for your daughter Melissa, that through the intercession of St Gemma, God may help her with her battle with drug addiction. We ask this grace especially in honor of St Gemma's feastday...May Saint Gemma be her special advocate. -St Gemma, pray for us!

Glenn Dallaire said...

Now, dear Gemma, that you are with your beloved Jesus, do not forget us who remain here below in this vale of tears, and obtain for us the graces and heavenly help that we need. Teach us how to sacrifice and suffer out of love for Jesus like you did. Guard and protect us from the evil one, and enlighten us against his evil temptations. Inspire and guide us throughout our earthly days, that we may always do God's will, and that we may always be pleasing to Jesus and Mary. Help us to love God with all of our hearts, and be with us always, especially in our last moments, and when we breath our last breath, present us to Jesus, and plead His mercy upon us, that we may be united with Jesus, Mary and you for all eternity. ~St Gemma, pray for us!

To Glenn,

Thank you for your prayers for my daughter Melissa. She's doing well in rehab & has indeed called out to the Lord for help. Please continue to pray for divine protection/safety for her in the facility where she is at, as there treatment methods do not embrace our beliefs. Also, please pray that our family will not be misled or deceived in any way during her treatment process. Once again, thank you so much for your consideration and for this site, and God Bless You Always. Carolyn Y.

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi Carolyn,

Thank you for the update on your daughter Melissa. I pray for her continued rehab and deliverance from drugs, and also for her continued conversion--may God continue to draw her ever closer to Himself, and may our blessed Mother protect her and cover her under Her mantle.

Hello,

Bless you for this site. Thank you for the prayers. Please pray for me and for my fiance, who is battling a chemical addiction. He finally has admitted himself for help. Please pray that we may have peace in our lives as his ex prevents him from a relationship with his son and interferes with our relationship, lying to the son and trying to come between my fiance and me. I pray for her and wish her no harm -- I've never met her, but she won't give me a chance, even after 2-1/2 years of being divorced from her ex (my fiance) -- a divorce SHE wanted. Thank you and God bless you.

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your message.

I will pray especially for your fiance that he may be freed from his chemical addition. -May God strengthen him!

Also, concerning the situation with your fiancees ex, without taking any sides I will pray for forgiveness and reconciliation between the both of you and her. Forgiveness is so important in the eyes of God!

May God bless you and may He draw all of you ever closer to Himself.

Dear Glenn,

I posted prayer requests on this site in Mar. & Apr. of this year concerning my daughter Melissa. She entered rehab for substance abuse, but unfortunately she's relapsed & states that she doesn't have any reason to try & live sober. My spouse Greg also struggles with alcohol & my older daughter Cara struggles with bulimia as well as drugs/alcohol. My faith is dwindling, and I don't want that. Pray for divine intervention that my broken family will be healed, delivered & set free. Thank you & God Bless, Carolyn.

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi Carolyn,
It is nice to hear from you again, although I wish the circumstances were better...I am saddened to hear that your daughters and hunsband are struggling with drugs, alcohol and bulemia. Your cross is very heavy...

I offer my poor prayers for you and your family, that God may strengthen and guide you. And I pray that others here who read your comments might also join in prayer.

Finally, I would like to suggest that perhaps you send a prayer request also to Sr. Catherine of the Flower of Carmel Hermitage. She is a hermit Sister in PA who accepts prayer requests on her website, located here:

Sr. Catherine- Flower of Carmel Hermitage

May God bless and strengthen you and your loved ones.

Dear Glenn,

Thank you so much for your prompt response to my comment/request. Since my first visit to this site, I've found much comfort and have been blessed greatly from it. After I've participated in the novena to St. Gemma several times, I truly sensed the Lord's presence in my circumstances & have been encouraged to not give up. Your encouragement means a great deal to me as well. It's comforting to know that other believers are standing in faith for one another. May the Lord richly bless you...Carolyn

Hi, Glenn.
I just happened on this site, as is probably the norm. My family is wounded. We are all in need of healing. My first husband died when my oldest children were 6 and 20 months. Three years later I married again and had two more children. My second husband, like my first, was not Catholic but he converted so that we would all be the same. Thank God, after 38 years, he is really embracing the Faith but while we were raising our children, we were not united and it is evident in our grown children. In spite of my efforts to have a united family, we are just six people going our separate ways with an occasional superficial connection. Three are married and we have five grandchildren with one on the way. The fourth will be married civilly before their baby is born in March and then in two church ceremonies - one in our state for our family and a second out of the country for his fiancee's family. I am not happy about the civil ceremony. Two go to church out of habit and two don't go. All grandchildren were Baptized but as they approach the age of receiving the other Sacraments, I don't know if that will happen for all of them. All have mental/emotional problems. I'm afraid one is bipolar. He is definitely obsessive/compulsive. My husband has Parkinson's Disease and he has paranoia, depression and anxiety. Our children are scattered in different states so it is hard to all get together to be a family. Two of the grandchildren have developmental issues and three have chronic asthma/allergy issues. One son has CP and will need surgery to implant a pacemaker-like device because he has nerve damage and can't feel when his bladder is full. The device will stimulate the nerves when the bladder is full. I am the oldest of a huge family - 16 children - 12 of us are living and most do not go to Church. I am viewed as a religious weirdo. I know things could be worse and I am thankful to God for all the good that He has done for me and my family. I pray for healing and conversion for all of us. Thank you and God bless you, Glenn.

Hi Anonymous,

Know that you and your family are in my prayers. Nothing is impossible for God. Like the Gospel reading today, the leper begged Jesus to heal him, and the LORD responded to him, saying: "I do will it. Be made clean!"

Ask the LORD for the grace of faith, and He will certainly give it to you. Who is the father who will not give good gifts to his children? Our God, the Father, won't disappoint you. All you need is ask Him in faith! You are His daughter, and He loves you and your family as He loves everyone else. May the peace of CHRIST be with you!

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi Anonymous,
Someone else kindly wrote the message above and I couldn't agree more.

God is so good, and the love of God surrounds us---all of us---even those who are indifferent to Him. And His mercy and forgiveness endures forever for those who desire it...and so many souls turn to Him in the last moments and seek His love and forgiveness! And so I offer my poor prayers for you and your loved ones---especially those who are indifferent towards our loving God--that God may open their hearts and draw them ever closer to Himself.

I gave away a St Gemma Galgani prayer card to a friend today who I believe maybe an atheist. I know he's certainly not a practicing catholic although his heritage is Italian. Both he and I suffer from bad backs so I told him to keep this with him at all times & I am praying that St Gemma may have some influence on both our our bad backs.

I frequently pray and go to mass regularly, so you never know the outcome. I am planning to walk the Camino to Santiago next spring (when my back and knees are healed from Le Puy en Velay. So I'll be needing a good back for that..

Please pray for Richard and I

Hi,
I have recently had 2 back surgeries on my lower back and I have had such a difficult time recovering as nerves take a very long time to heal for some folks. Would you mind praying to St. Gemma for me? I am going to try the Novena. I really would be thankful for your prayers of healing. I am only 35 and have never been so low and scared. Thank you!

Sincerley,

Andy

Glenn Dallaire said...

Dear Andy,
I am sorry to hear of the troubles that you are having with the healing of your back. However I am glad to hear that Jesus has led you to St Gemma because in her you have found a heavenly friend who can sympathise with your back problems, given all she suffered in this regards. Many people with back and spinal problems have found her to be a very powerful and devoted friend and heavenly advocate-- for as you have probably read on the website, Gemma too suffered greatly during her long illness from a spinal disease , so she can certainly sympathize with what you are experiencing. For as you may know she had a tumor at the base of her spine which affected her spinal fluid and the physicians thought she had spinal meningitis, anyway, she suffered incredible back pain and migraines and she wore a back brace for awhile, but she was eventually completely bedridden due to the progression of the spinal disease....in January 1898, the physicians cauterized her spine in 12 places, but this only made things worse. It came to a point in March where she was at the verge of death, her physician said she had only a short time left...but Jesus willed otherwise, and she was cured by Jesus on the first Friday of March (Sacred Heart) during which Jesus appeared to her.....perhaps you have already read it but I wrote an article all about Gemma's spinal illness and miraculous cure on this website.

I pray that St Gemma may intercede for you and obtain healing for you from Jesus. And may Jesus continue to guide and inspire you, may He draw you ever closer to Himself this Christmas and throughout the New Year! Amen +

Please pray for my confusion of my faith. I have been struggling for eight years to know what truth is . I have read books against the Church (like Dave Hunt, Richard Bennett and Mike Gendron) and for the Church (Mother Angelica and others). I have no peace. CARM on their website said in 'Is the Mass a sacrifice?' that the church is being unbiblical. Read it. I don't know. I am catholic but not sure to stay. Pray for me, please. -from a confused soul.

Glenn Dallaire said...


Hi Anonymous,
Thanks for sharing a bit of your struggles and your spiritual journey. You can be sure that the Catholic church is the true Church because it dates back to Jesus, with Peter as the first pope and the apostles as the first Bishops..the papal succession and apostolic succession from Jesus to this very day has never been broken. If you haven't already, Read about apostolic succession of the bishops and you will find peace in knowing that the Catholic church dates all the way back to Jesus, and is the true Church that Jesus founded on Peter and the apostles.

May Jesus guide you and grant you His peace and give you the wisdom necessary to put your soul at rest.

Just an update that since I've started walk training for the Camino the condition of my back is much improved! I've walked just under 80 miles in the last three weeks. My health is much improved aa I'm avoiding potatoes/bread/pasta as much as I can to lose some weight too.

I am grateful to all the saints for their help, especially St Gemma and St. Pio. All I need to do now is have a miraculous healing in my knees & I should be walking from Le Puy en Velay to Santiago via Lourdes.

Thanks again for your prayers.

One more thing anyone who can spare a prayer or two for Morgan Farrier who suffers from Cystic Fibrosis is a wonderful person.

Thanks to everyone!

Hello. I found this site while researching prayers for back pain. My oldest son who is thirty-six is suffering terribly with chronic back pain. Prayers for his healing would be so very appreciated. Also, and even more sad, please pray for my two year old grandson who was diagnosed last July with high risk stage four neuroblastoma. This little guy is a magnificent soldier, surprising everyone with how well he takes all the treatments. My heartfelt gratitude goes out to all who offer a prayer for my son and grandson.

My wife is currently in A & E awaiting the result of an MRI as she has suspected Caudia Equina Syndrome which usually requires surgery.

She has been in considerable pain with a herniated disk which has got progressively worse.

This is only a few short months after gallbladder surgery too.

I love her dearly and really don't want further surgery for her, just relief

"Gemma's mother taught her from an early age to kneel on her hands and pray".
What does "kneel on her hands" mean?
Does that mean she sits on her hands? Or just kneel with her arms at her torso?

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi Apple Glen Blair,
To reply to your question, Gemma used to kneel on her hands (one knee on each hand) while reciting 3 Hail Mary's to obtain from God the grace of keeping always her purity and chastity. From what I have read, she said these 3 Hail Mary's everyday during her childhood, and I suspect perhaps throughout her life. And obviously these prayer to the Blessed Virgin worked because she is known and admired for the virtue of purity. In fact Gemma's spiritual director, Venerable Father Germanus C.P. wrote a good deal about this in his biography on St Gemma.

May God bless you and your loved ones,
Glenn Dallaire

Apple Glenn Blair said...

Hi, Glenn!
Thanks for your reply.

I want to pray like St. Gemma. Are her hands palms down or palms up when she kneels on them?
God Bless you, too! :D

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi Apple Glen Blair,
Having tried this on a number of occasions, I believe that she definitely must have done this palms down on the floor.
Best wishes and may God bless you and your loved ones!

I would like to ask prayers and intercession of St Gemma. I have had two back surgeries and ongoing pain for many months this was debilitating. Thanks to God for almost two years now I have been able to live mostly pain free. However during the past few months a time of great anxiety, with a daughter who will not stay in contact with us and is involved with drugs and another suffering depression and with a small baby,I want to ask support of St Gemma.We are now moving house and the stress is causing aggravation to my back pain and I am crying a lot . I ask for the strength and courage of St Gemma and for a release from the pain if it is God's will. I ask help for my family who are suffering and for my sins to be forgiven amen x

Marino said...

Hello,
I'm not sure if Catholics around the world do this, but we do In Ireland and that is to give those that were friends and relations a memoriam card when a loved one has died. I have been trying to choose an appropriate prayer by St Gemma for this card can you suggest one? I would like to put it on the card both in English and Italian.

I had thought about.....

“O my soul, bless Jesus.
Never forget the many graces He has given thee.
Love that God who so loves thee.
Lift thyself up to Him, who has lowered Himself for thee;
show thyself as He shows Himself with thee;
be clean of heart, be pure.
Love thy Jesus, who has lifted thee out of so much misery.
Love thy God, bless thy Lord.”

What do you think?

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi Marino,
Yes, for sure this is a excellent prayer for a memoriam card!

May God bless you and your loves ones,
Glenn Dallaire

Marino said...

Thanks for that Glenn I was hoping someone would agree with me about the use of that prayer for that purpose. I would also like to place an image of St Gemma on the card, are there any copyright issues with replicating the images on your site?

I thought I 'd come back and mention that I've been blessed with no more pain in my back. I know I no longer have the pain I had, alas the problem has now morphed in that I was diagnosed diabetic about 6 months ago.

I'm going to ask my favorite priest Father James Bruse to say a Mass to St Gemma for the thanksgiving of no longer having a bad back. I am hoping to that the Lord will cure my diabetes too. BTW do you know the patron saint for suffers of diabetes?

Hi John,
Thanks for the update concerning your recovery from pain in your back---thanks be to God!

Hello. I just came across this wonderful website while I was looking for prayers to be said today, St. Gemma's feast day. Glenn, please pray to St. Gemma on my behalf for the following intentions. I am in desperate need of financial assistance for the remaining semester of college. I honestly don't know how to pay for it. I have applied for some scholarships of which I am eligible, but I have not won any. And my school, unfortunately, does not offer scholarships for transfer students. At times, I feel so hopeless. Please also pray that I stay focused in school and not suffer any more setbacks. And please also place my name and intentions before St. Gemma's relics. Thank you. May God continue to bless you and your family.

In May my Mother was dying. One night I had a dream that I was in a church in what seemed to be Italy. A little old lady in black came over to me and asked me, "Do you know St. Gemma?" I had never heard of St. Gemma. When I searched the internet I found out who St. Gemma was. Since that dream I have encountered St. Gemma in many different ways. In a religious article store I was given the opportunity to pray holding a relic of St. Gemma. A beautiful experience! Upon reading about Gemma I was struck with the fact that she was a patroness of those suffering the loss of a parent. St. Gemma, pray for us.

I want to keep this personal, therefore I use no name. One year ago my wife became seriously ill, in intensive care I was told the outlook was very grim that she would probably not make it. I was told that if she did make it that she would require a transplant, but only if a suitable donor organ became available and if she was accepted for the operation, even if that happened things could get bleak.

As people do I immediately turned to prayer and to my favourite saint, Saint Gemma Galgani as well as other prayers and conversations I had with her (in my head) I prayed the Triduum in honor of St. Gemma: For the sick and the infirm. The next day in hospital I was told that things had improved, my wife was still seriously ill, but was improving, the doctors did not expect this. I kept praying and my wife kept improving, now one year later although she has not totally recovered she is well on her way to reaching a full recovery and she is back at work. Many would see her recovery as coincidental, not me.

One day I had left a little magnetic badge of St Gemma beside my wife's hospital bed and I asked St Gemma to look after her and to be there when she was lonely, afraid or sad, I don't remember how soon after I left the badge it was but soon after I called in for my usual evening visit and found my wife in unusually good form, as bright and happy as she could be in hospital. There was a very pleasant pretty dark haired nurse working with her, I had not seen her before and although she was there some days after this she seemed to move away from my wife's ward to work elsewhere. She was a lovely friendly nurse, and she cheered my wife up, spoke to her and looked after her, she was just what my wife needed.

Her name was Gemma.

I thank God for my wife's recovery to date, and I thank St Gemma for the help, love and support that she gave to my wife and to me.
(I thanked the doctors and nurses and other staff too by the way, when I was taking my wife home)

May St Gemma pray for us all.

It is Anon again from March 8.
On Friday April 8, I went with my wife to her app with her Consultant. My wife's health has continued to improve, the Consultant is very pleased with her progress and has reduced her med's. Of course in the meantime I had kept asking St Gemma G to assist and intercede. and I believe she did, and has been doing so all along.

I leave a comment just because of what the Consultant said.

She said to my wife: " You are a miracle".

I believe that this is so. I know what I asked for, probably better described as pleaded for and so far, as far as I can see I have got it. My prayers have been answered, Thank God.

Many people will laugh at what I say, or rubbish it as coincidence, but I know and I believe, I asked St Gemma to intercede for me and to beg for my wife's life and health, and she did.

I pray daily for St Gemma's continued love and intercession and I humbly ask in my prayers that our Lord bless St Gemma that her name might be known even more across this world as someone whose example and prayers should be followed and used. In my prayers I ask that those who work for our Great and loving God in St Gemma's memory be blessed with great success. I especially include all Passionists and Passionists at heart, the Sisters of Gemma in Lucca and you Glenn and all like you that use the internet for this great work.

To non believers desperately seeking help, I suggest that you ask my friend, our friend Gemma for help.
May St Gemma G, intercede for you and may God smile upon you. Amen

I am waiting to hear if I have been succesful in the recent interview that I did for a job that I would really love to do. As usual when it comes to such things where I feel inadequate or in need of assistance I prayed. I also asked our good friend Gemma to assist me and I took a relic of hers with me to the interview. A lovely old cross and chain, that had belonged to my father. Although I have pleaded with Gemma to help me get the job, I have also asked for a big spiritual hug should I fail. I will be a sad boy for a while if I don't get the job but that won't last forever, I know my failure will mean little compared with the troubles many people face.

If you read this please say a brief prayer for me or think a speedy prayerful thought for me.

When I pray I remember St Gemma and thank God for her example and prayers and I ask him to bless his work that is done in her memory.

I also pray for those people that love St Gemma and strive to undertake God's work in her name. Those people that have a devotion to St Gemma, possibly you, I regard as being like close family. May God bless you all. God is great and good.
