Prayer of St. Gertrude

Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of thy Divine Son, Jesus, 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. Amen

The Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin, Mary, that never was it known that any one who fled to Thy protection, implored Thy help, and sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee I come, before thee I stand sinful and sorrowful. O, Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but, in thy mercy, hears and answer me. Amen

Religious Freedom Prayer  

Almighty God, Father of all nations, for freedom you have set us free in Christ Jesus. We praise and bless you for the gift of religious liberty, the foundation of human rights, justice, and the common good. Grant to our leaders the wisdom to protect and promote our liberties. By your grace may we have the courage to defend them, for ourselves and for all those who live in this blessed land. We ask this through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, our patroness, and in the name of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, with whom you live and reign, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Mark Lenard is one of the few actors ever to portray three different aliens on Star Trek: a Romulan, a Klingon and a Vulcan.

In addition to having played all three (at the time) major aliens in the Star Trek universe (the Romulan commander in the original series "Balance of Terror", the Vulcan Sarek, and the Klingon captain in Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979)), he also almost played a human - Gene Roddenberry wanted him to portray Abraham Lincoln in "The Savage Curtain" (the episode where Kirk, Spock, Lincoln, and Vulcan legend Surak represent "good" in a staged battle with Genghis Khan and three others representing "evil"), but Lenard was unavailable at the time.

In addition to appearing in several Star Trek shows and movies as Spock's father, Sarek, Lenard also played the very first Romulan ever seen and played the first Klingon to feature a "forehead" (the lumpy forehead prosthetics).

Is one of only 32 actors or actresses to have starred in both the original "Star Trek" (1966) (up to and including Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991)) and then in one of the spin-offs.

Had to have his hair dyed and makeup applied to his face to make him look older while playing Sarek, the Vulcan father of Spock on "Star Trek"(1966) because in reality he wasn't that much older than Leonard Nimoy, who played Spock.

Has 2 daughters.

Personal Quotes

The screen captures your persona. It's not my personality, but it captures something in me that is there, something you cannot create or fake. That's something about acting: the camera catches something or it doesn't. Those who are successful are those who have been captured, who have presence and screen personality.
