Saint Colette, a Poor Clare Nun of fifteenth century France, was born to childless parents when her mother was in her sixtieth year.  Because of this remarkable event, she is invoked by childless couples desiring to become parents.

Her extraordinary intervention for a woman dying in childbirth has made her likewise the patroness of expectant mothers, and her multiple wonders on behalf of sick infants have inspired parents to turn to her in this need also.

   In the tenderness of His mercy, God has granted special intercessory powers to this cloistered Poor Clare Saint on behalf of childless couples, expectant mothers and ailing children.

   Saint Colette will listen with love and compassion to all who invoke her.  Like all contemplatives, her heart is wide and ready to hold the grief of the world.

O Glorious Saint Colette,

I beseech you

through the burning love which
inflamed your heart for Jesus
in the Most Blessed Sacrament,
through the marvelous graces
with which He enriched you and
the loving compassion you did bear
to Him in His bitter sufferings,
obtain from Him for me
my requests which I hope
to receive through your
powerful intercession.



O Lord Jesus Christ,
who have enriched Your spouse,
Saint Colette,
with heavenly graces,
grant, we beseech You,
that we may imitate her virtues
here on earth,
and with her enjoy the eternal happiness of heaven.



Saint Colette,
patroness of childless couples,
pray for us!

Saint Colette,
friend of sick children,
pray for us!

Saint Colette,
intercessor for expectant mothers,
pray for us!
