Saint Brother André, you followed a path to the Lord
marked by prayer and welcoming of others.
Help us to welcome as you did,
the people whom life puts on our path.
You trusted your friend Saint Joseph.
Teach us to know, trust and love better
the one you chose as patron of this Oratory.
You surrounded yourself with men and women,
in building a remarkable sacred space.
Help us live this precious heritage
of prayer, faith and love.
Lord, guide us
in the footsteps of this humble brother.
Transform our hearts so that we can
keep alive this heritage
of fervent prayer and unconditional welcome.
We pray to you, our Father, through your Son and in the Spirit.
