Saint Gerard Majella is the patron saint of mothers. When Gerard was young, he became a Redemptorist lay brother and soon became known as "The Wonder Worker". He was falsely accused by a pregnant woman of fathering her child and withdrew from society in response. This accusation is why he is now known as the patron saint of motherhood. The saint is depicted wearing a traditional black robe and holding a golden cross. The beautiful full color Religious Art St. Gerard Majella statue makes an excellent gift for any mother or mother-to-be.
