    In my many visits to Lachine, Canada to visit my grandparents on my mom s side, my parents always made it a point to stop off at St Joseph s Oratory on Mount Royal in Montreal While my family was always spiritual in nature rather than religious and not even Catholic, for that matter, they were always drawn to Brother Andr and that huge fortress of prayer, contemplation and intercession And year after year, it became a family tradition We would light a candle, pray, roam about and be united to all the other people who were there There was peace, continuity and community And that essence, that spirit, was palpable It was transformative in the best way possible.In the crypt room where Brother Andr lies in repose, there is a guestbook on a wooden stand or shelf in the small circular rotunda like the capitol letter C where people from all backgrounds and nationalities write down their prayer intentions then they move forward to the black marble sepulcher where on it is written ITE AD JOSEPH GO TO JOSEPH People kneel, pray to Jesus through St Joseph and Brother Andr , hope and are strengthened And then they head out of the crypt area and into the votive candle room where the candle light peacefully flickers and the vibe strongly penetrates Adorned on all the grayish blue brick walls are glass cases containing photos, relics and memorabilia with placards that tell the simple story of this ordinary yet extraordinary man And with all that, there is still so much to learn.To better understand the life of St Brother Andr Bessette, I highly recommend Fr Dubuc s incisive biography Brother Andr Friend of the Suffering, Apostle of Saint Joseph Brother Andr was truly one of God s little one s, a misfit by society s standards, because he was deemed incapable of doing anything of any substantial value He was short in stature, weak in strength, frail and sickly, and that caused him to be kept at the side of his nurturing mother, a woman of simple yet profound faith who taught him to look beyond his limitations and have faith in God, especially in St Joseph, the husband of Mary and the stepfather to our Lord Jesus Brother Andr experienced terrible losses early in his life, than a youth should ever have to experience But ingrained in him was a devotion to the Holy Family, a family trinity that would never leave him, despite the hardships that would and did come his way More often, they bore him up when it would have been easier for him to look down in defeat, loss and hopelessness Still very young, he was forced to look for work and subsist on whatever food was given to him, no matter how meager or unpleasant it might have been He traversed many towns and villages from Canada to the United States to find work And when he did find employment, it was never long lasting due to his physical frailty and the limitation of his schooling But in the background of his life was always St Joseph A worker, a strong man, a devout man of faith, a non complainer, a steady guy who just persevered Those are wonderful attributes, and it is understandable, from a human perspective, why Brother Andr latched onto him, for where I am lacking in those qualities, St Joseph is indeed a wonderful example to emulate But with that aside, there was something , a supernatural friendship that ushered in an etherial transcendence, and anyone who was close to him could sense it quite keenly It was holiness And it would lead him from the mill towns of New Hampshire and other places to the Congregation of Holy Cross in Montreal.When he was sent to the school, he was sent with a note or reference attesting to his holiness And while his superiors were initially dubious about him and what he could offer, they took him in anyway While at the school, he acted as a porter and greeted people and did simple tasks, but it was his approach to his work and the way he was with the people who came to the collage where his holy luminosity became evident It got to the point where folks just wanted to see and hear him, because his life and outlook on all matters, both good and bad, were so Gospel oriented and focused Yet, that focus was pragmatic, down to earth, simple, applicable for day to day life Above all, it was his humility He hated all the attention that he got and could even be gruff as a result of it all He worked his whole life to redirect the attention to Jesus Christ, the Blessed Virgin Mary and above all his friend, St Joseph And it was his inspirations and gentle prodding that led to the construction of the oratory Most compelling, too, was his use of St Joseph s oil and the healing phenomena that surrounded him in life and in death Fr Dubuc s excellent book explores the many nuances of Brother Andr s life his travels, his prayer life, his humor, his unending availability to all who sought him out, his friends, his struggles He is such a relatable saint And this biography addresses so many aspects of not only his life but also the life of Canada as well Some great documentaries to watch on St Brother Andr would be Bob and Penny Lord s Brother Andr Miracle Worker, the film, Brother Andr by Jean Claude Labrecque and God s Doorkeeper St Andr of Montreal by Salt Light Television.

    My husband and I visited Montreal in August and visited the St Joseph s Oratory which is a impressive massive church on the side of Mount Royal We had never heard of Brother Andre and spent some time visiting the church and beautiful surrounding gardens and had our picnic lunch there We learned a little about Brother Andre who was a monk that spent his entire career welcoming visitors to the church and visiting the sick He was know as a healer and we saw many left medical devices, canes on display He was devoted to St Joseph and was instrumental in getting the church built We bought this book to find out about the humble monk and it is an inspiring story A few weeks after we returned home,low and behold, the Catholic church proclaimed Brother Andre a Saint.If you visit Montreal don t miss this beautiful church and pick up a copy of this book to find out about the latest American Saint.
