Gianna Center –Keeping hope alive for infertile couples

Gianna Center logo.jpgAn ad on the back cover of the Catholic New York sparks me to draw the attention of Communio readers and others to the good work of The Gianna Center and the founders, Dr. Anne Nolte and Dr. Kyle Beiter.

The Gianna Center uses highly successful technology that’s healthy for the woman to see if pregnancy is possible. Infertility is a terrible cross for a couple but not every medical technique is helpful, right or ethical/moral. The Gianna Center works to restore the natural fertility of the woman (and man). Many couples who seek treatments to get pregnant are often told that nothing but chemical and/or fertility are possible. Not true. The Gianna Center has done marvelous healthy and holy work.

Praying with Saint Gianna

Last week there was an extraordinary Mass of Saint Gianna and a talk by the saint’s son at the Church and Priory of Saint Catherine of Siena (E. 68th St, NYC). I still find it amazing to say that a saint’s son is talking about his mother, a saint of the Church. Dominican Brother Ignatius Perkins wrote a reflection on what he experienced and gave some helpful links to a story in the Catholic New York and the video on Currents TV. Having been there myself –though serving the Mass– I am still in awe of the event because I think it truly was an encounter with Christ. Some many people came to meet Christ through the witness of Saint Gianna, the Mass and others. I wouldn’t be surprised if several miracles result from this event.

The Church of Saint Catherine of Siena was packed with people (SRO) with stunning music and fine preaching. The presence of the staff of the Dominican Friars Healthcare Ministries and the Gianna Center was aslo a beautiful thing. The faithful, indeed, wrote their intentions for Saint Gianna’s intercession and venerated relics of the saint.

Here’s Brother Ignatius’s review.

Here’s the video for the Gianna Mass

Gianna Healthcare Center blessed and dedicated

Thumbnail image for Dr Anne enthroning image of St Gianna.jpgYesterday morning the founders, benefactors and friends of The Gianna Healthcare Center for Women joined Archbishop Timothy Dolan in dedicating and blessing the Center at 15 East 40th Street. We were joined by Saint Gianna’s son, Pierluigi Molla.

The Archbishop prayed the prayers written by Archbishop Raymond Burke for the enshrinement of the picture and relic of Saint Gianna. One very beautiful prayer composed by Saint Gianna was prayed by all:
O Mary, into thy maternal hands I place, commend and abandon myself entirely, sure of obtaining what I request. I rely upon thee because thou art my sweet mother; I confide in thee because thou art “Mother of Jesus”; I entrust myself to thee.

In this trust I rest sure of being heard in everything, with this trust in my heart I greet thee my mother, my confidence; I consecrate myself to thee, begging thee to remember that I am thine own; guard me and defend me, sweet Mary, and in every instant of my life present thyself, to thy Son, Jesus.
