    I am forwarding to all my former classmates at Ateneo, the request of the Society of Jesus to pray for one of its “soldiers” Rev. Fr. Joseph Galdon whom we all had the privilege of having as a teacher and counselor at both high school and college and for a few of us, graduate level.

    Wow, never had him as a professor but I really love the reverence students give to the Jesuit profs (in our time: Fr. Luis David, Fr. Dacanay, Fr. Dan Macnamara, Fr. Joseph Roche, Fr. Villarin and Fr. Ben Nebres to name a few..). I’ll pray for him.

    I am blessed to have known Fr. Galdon and am sad that he has passed away.
    I met Fr. Galdon when I asked him to be the Retreat master of the Faculty I belonged to in a private high school (30+ years ago). There begun my spiritual journey with Our Lord through Fr. Galdon.
    Then he was the priest who married us. He made my husband so at ease during the ceremony, considering my husband was not Catholic. My husband will always respect Fr. Galdon’s understanding and love.
    He was a wonderful spiritual advisor for many years, even if I was already living in the States.
    My husband and I will always remember him as a holy priest, who had so much wisdom and humor.
    Now I have someone I know who will be praying for us.
    My comment is my small way of giving honor and pride to have known Fr. Galdon.
    He will always be in our hearts.
