Brother Andre, born Alfred Bessette, surely is one of
the most popular Quebecois of the 20th century. Even before he was "canonized" by the Novus Ordo faith in
2010, his reputation for holiness crossed frontiers and influenced generations of people. At first assigned to be
doorkeeper at Collage Notre-Dame, he was then named caretaker at that house of prayer which he shepherded into
existence on Mount Royal. The religious brother welcomed thousands of distressed people or those who were looking
for a ray of hope. He listened to them and recommended that they pray to Saint Joseph in whom he had full
confidence. Any number of miraculous healings took place there and hearts turned toward God. Today, Brother Andre continues to be an inspiration and a friend for all people.
