Our Blessed Lady and Saint Gertrude the Great: Monday, November 16, 2015

J.M.J. Today, the Church liturgically remembers Saint Gertrude the Great (1256-1301/1302). 

She described in writing the friendship that her soul enjoyed with Jesus and Mary. 

It is stated that on the day of her death, Saint Gertrude saw the Ever-Virgin descend from Heaven to assist her.

And how can we forget "The Prayer of Saint Gertrude?"

Eternal Father, I offer Thee 
the most Precious Blood 
of Thy Divine Son, Jesus Christ, 
in union with the Masses said 
throughout the world today, 
for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, 
for sinners everywhere, 
for sinners in the Universal Church, 
for those in my own home 
and within my family.
