St. Gabriel of the Sorrowful Mother, February 27th
St. Gabriel of the Sorrowful Mother, Pray for us!
* We have a particular devotion to this saint, because he is a special patron for young men -- and we have six of them. He is also one of the patrons of our five-year-old son, Gabriel (who incidentally, favors him in looks). But, we are also honored to have received a first class relic "ex corpore" of St. Gabriel of the Sorrowful Mother as a gift from our son, Jon, when he visited Rome last year. So St. Gabriel is very special to us. We invoke him every day in our rosary and pray for his intercession for all our children, asking for his prayers especially for all seminarians, and particularly our personal friends studying for the priesthood.
