Saint Gertrude the Great
Feast Day -- November 16
Saint Gertrude was a German nun. Her parents died when she was young, so she lived in a convent. Gertrude was very smart and loved to read. She was especially good at reading Latin. Gertrude also loved to pray for people who had died, asking God to take them to Heaven. She prayed for her family, friends, and everyone she met. Many Saints have used Saint Gertrude as an example of a very holy woman.
Patron of travelers and the West Indies. Saint Gertrude was well educated in philosophy and literature.
Eternal Father, I offer thee the most precious blood of they divine Son, Jesus Christ, for all the holy souls in Purgatory and for sinners everywhere. (Saint Gertrude's prayer.)
