God’s doorkeeper: St. André of Montreal (DVD)
God’s doorkeeper: St. André of Montreal, tells the story of Saint Brother André, born Alfred Bessette.
For 40 years, Brother André Bessette of the Congregation of Holy Cross welcomed people at the door and became known as a miraculous healer.
God’s doorkeeper looks at the heart and legacy of Brother André – as a man of prayer, of hospitality, and of compassion; a man who draws people to a God who is love.
On October 17, 2010, Brother André became the first male Canadian-born saint and the first saint for the Congregation of Holy Cross.
He is living proof that “it is the smallest of brushes that the artist paints the most beautiful pictures.”
This special documentary includes: commentary from people who knew Brother André and continue his work today; interviews from Montreal, Rome, and different parts of the United States; reflections from Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB, on the perennial relevance of Br. André; and footage of the unforgettable events of Br. André’s road to sainthood (beatification, canonization and special celebrations in Rome and Montreal).
