Brother Andre, God's Doorkeeper (DVD)
I just finished watching the DVD documentary on Saint Brother Andre Bessette, 'God's Doorkeeper.' The DVD runs at about 60 minutes and covers the entire life of this great Saint. I particularly loved the old film footage that was interwoven throughout the production. It is amazing to see the large amount of people that stood in lines to see him most every day. We often think of how many went to see the great Padre Pio, and yet few realize that we have a North American version of Padre Pio right here in our own backyard. Canonized on October 17th, 2010, Brother Andre is another clear example of the miracles God works through those who humble themselves before Him. Although working as just a doorman for The Congregation of the Holy Cross, a seemingly thankless and unimportant task, God worked many miracles through him. I am looking forward to visiting the Oratory in Montreal this coming June.
