A fantastic book for anyone who has a devotion to the famous St. Gerard Majella, "Patron of Expectant Mothers." Though he died of tuberculosis at only 29 and was only a lay brother in the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer (Redemptorists), he achieved great sanctity - such that his superiors attested that he had not only not committed any mortal sins, but that they could not detect that he had ever been guilty of any sin at all!

The Rev. Father Edward Saint-Omer, C.SS.R., was a priest and author of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. His spiritual biography entitled St. Gerard Majella: The Wonder-Worker and Patron of Expectant Mothers chronicles the unique and powerful life of the saint, whose fellow-monks could not attest to a single sin committed by him. Father Saint-Omer's work was originally published around 1907 by Mission Church Press, Boston, with the title of The Wonder-Worker of Our Days: The Life, Virtues, and Miracles of St. Gerard Majella, Lay Brother of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer. It has since been reproduced complete and unabridged from the Second Edition, and was published by TAN in 1999.
