Many have said that they found a treasure praying the 15 St. Bridget prayers and all the other devotions.
History: In the early 1970s, a gentleman in southwest Michigan, Harry Faulhaber, wanted a spiritual gift to leave with people when making home visits on behalf of his parish. With his wife, Lillian, and a friend in Italy, Thomas Zimmer (known as “the hermit of Loreto”), they compiled their favorite prayers, took them to a local printer and had 1,000 copies made.
Eventually all the books were given away and they made the decision to print more. They realized that they would have to charge a small fee for the book to offset the printing and shipping costs. To keep the cost as low as possible, they asked at the post office, “What’s the cheapest way to ship this?” “Book Rate (Media Mail),” replied the postmaster, “but in order to be considered a book, it must have at least 72 pages.” They opened the Pieta book and it had exactly 72 pages! That was over 40 years ago and there are over 9 million books in print in all parts of the world.
This booklet contains the 15 prayers revealed by Our Lord to St. Bridget of Sweden, the Prayer to the Holy Face of Jesus by St. Therese of Lisieux, the Stations of the Cross, the Chaplet of The Divine Mercy, and various other traditional Catholic prayers, such as:
Ave Maris Stella
