Feast of Blessed Andre


Today, as we all know, is the Solemnity of the Epiphany - it is also the Feast Day of Blessed Brother Andre Bessette, the Founder of the world's largest Church dedicated to St. Joseph, the Oratory in Montreal. He is almost a local saint in these parts - related to various people in the parish - and Montreal is just 90 minutes away. Brother Andre used to spend some of his Summer just up the road in Richford visiting his family. For all who have a devotion to St. Joseph, the Oratory is a 'must-see' destination.

I visited there last year on my last day in America - in the few hours I had to catch my flight from Montreal back to London. What a man! Will try a post a few photos on my blog. Happy feast and New Year, Fr Ben.
