Feb. 29, 1916 - Aug. 15, 1987 On the 25th anniversary of his entrance into eternity on the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the life and memory of John J. Madison is lovingly recalled with the utmost gratitude to Almighty God! His life was one of intimate union with the Passion of Christ through his devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Faithfully living his vocation as a husband and father, John loved his wife ANNE with "a love without measure" and was devoted to his children, JOHN, BARRY, DENNIS, KEVIN, MARIE THERESE, and CHRISTOPHER! He was an authentic Catholic gentleman, despite his human weakness, and he genuinely loved Christ and His Church. The lives of all who knew him were enriched and the world is a better place because of him! We shall never see his like again. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord. Let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace! Lovingly missed by his 10 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren as well.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
