"Here is the grain" -- Saint Andre Bessette

His name was Alfred Bessette. He was born on August 9, in 1845, and was baptized on condition the very next day, for he was so weak at his birth his parents feared for his life.

Read the story of this remarkable man who was canonized just last October. May Saint Andre Bessette intercede for you and for me!

P.S. The website of Saint Joseph's Oratory is definitely worth the trip!
