Brother Andre Canonized today, yeah!

Let the Montreal celebrations begin!
Quebecers have been rejoicing for months, ever since the Vatican announced Feb. 19 that their beloved Br. André would be made a saint. Now that Pope Benedict XVI formally canonized St. André Bessette, or St. Brother André (a more intimate title approved for him for local use), the celebrations can officially begin.

Saint Brother André pray for us
