MEMORIAL - JOE BRIDGEMAN

(Last Updated: 1/15/07)

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Joe Bridgeman.

Joe was hospitalized in September 2004 and passed away on Wednesday, 10/13/04. His funeral was Saturday, 10/16/04. He was a volunteer at the Pilgrims of Faith Marian Center (PFMC).

Joe wrote a prayer for the PFMC that was so well liked that we had it printed on the back of a holy card and distributed 100’s of them. This PFMC prayer was revised slightly and printed on the back of more than 4000 Christmas Cards inserted in the December 2003 issue of “The PILGRIM” and then printed in the text of the January 2004 issue of “The PILGRIM.” Joe’s PFMC prayer was originally printed in the July–August 1996 issue of “The PILGRIM” and was printed again on the front page in January 1999.

Thanks again, Joe.

Pilgrims of Faith Marian Center (PFMC) Prayer

O Precious Mother of God, I come before you this day in union with your most Immaculate Heart and the most Sacred Heart of your Son, Jesus. I ask for special blessings upon the Pilgrims of Faith Marian Center, as well as all Marian Centers. Bless them in their work of spreading your messages of Prayer, Fasting, Reconciliation, Conversion and Peace. Bless them with the gifts of Charity to all who seek their guidance, of love for all hearts both hardened and converted, for healing of the wounded areas of all aspects of physical, emotional, and spiritual life. Fill each person with a desire to serve you and your Son in wisdom, and as ambassadors to bring forth the Kingdom of God. Allow each Marian Center to work with a freedom in the fullness of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit so that every soul who comes in contact with them will be touched with His gentle hand, His truth, His Knowledge and His Justice. I invoke the spiritual warfare armor of Saint Michael, the Archangel, and all the angels and saints. May they protect this Center of Peace, and enable it to function and prosper with Heavenly guidance. AMEN.

The above PFMC Prayer was written by Joe Bridgeman in the middle 1990's.
