May 14: St Gemma Galgani, saint of the Passion of Jesus.
Patron of Healing Back Pain & Headaches.
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”
Pray for us, Saint Gemma, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Gemma was not a person of half measures; she loved God with all of her being. Her heart was all on fire with the love of Jesus, and Jesus was everything to her.
