Saint Brother André
As with many Saints that we have written about, when Blessed André died on January 6, 1937, the Faithful had already proclaimed him a Saint. In the case of Blessed André of Mont Royal, or Montreal, Canada, not only the citizens of that city, but indeed all of French Canada considered him a Saint during his lifetime.
There was an expression which circulated French Canada during the early 1900’s when something could not be done, “Hey, I’m not Brother André. I can’t get it done.”
One of the resource books we’re using for this life of Blessed André is “Brother André, Miracle Worker of Mont Royal.”
This title just about expresses what Brother André was and did. The Lord worked powerfully through him and all was done through the intercession of, and to give honor to Saint Joseph.
The monument to Saint Joseph, high on a hill overlooking all of Montreal, is a tribute from Brother André to Saint Joseph; but we believe it’s also a tribute from Saint Joseph and our Heavenly family as well as the people of Montreal to their own Brother André.
