Saint Andre Bessette


It is fitting during the year honoring St. Joseph to remember St. Andre's lifelong devotion to St. Joseph, attributing to him the miraculous healings that occurred though Andre's hands and intercessions. His mission to accomplish the building of an oratory to St. Joseph on the highest mountain in Montreal was also fueled by his own hard work, the help of others and constant reliance on St. Joseph. Even during his lifetime, he was known as the Miracle Worker of Montreal.
