To Free from suffering following the example of Saint Brother André

Over the years, the Counseling Office of Saint Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal, a space of welcome, of listening, and of compassion, has without question become a valuable service offered to people who are wounded, not necessarily physically – as was the case in the time of Brother André (1904 to 1937) — but rather psychically, psychologically, emotionally, affectively, morally, and religiously.

Message from Father Claude Grou, CSC

You know the popular expression, “Out of sight out of mind.” We could take advantage of this crucial time to adapt this saying to read,” Out of sight near to heart.” The important measures of public health oblige us to live at a certain physical distancing. We have to remain at a distance from others, even those that we used to rub elbows with. These practices are not easy… but this fact illustrates that humans like to live in groupings, that we have need of others, their help, their affection.

March 3, 2020 Fêtes et célébrations, Pilgrimages and Devotions, Saint Joseph

Naturally, every novena celebrated at Saint Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal has its own story…

Although Saint Brother André’s Original Chapel was inaugurated in the fall of 1904, it was used on a seasonal basis during the first five years of its existence. The Feast of St. Joseph wasn’t celebrated until 1909, and it was noticed that at the time, the Ascension (40 days after Easter) seemed to draw the most pilgrims.
