1/6/2012

healingmassNearly 100 people turned out for the Healing Mass on the Feast of Saint André Bessette at The Father Peyton Center in North Easton, Massachusetts, USA. Concelebrants, Father Leo Polselli, CSC, Chaplain of the Center, and Father John Phalen, CSC, President of Holy Cross Family Ministries, blessed those in attendance with a Saint André relic and anointed them with Saint Joseph oil from the Oratory in Montreal, Canada.


Brother André died in 1937 at the age of 91. He was known as a healer healingmassand the "Miracle Man of Montreal" where he founded the Oratory of Saint Joseph. One million people paid their respects at his death. He was canonized by Pope Benedict XVI on October 17, 2010, and is the first member of the Congregation of Holy Cross to be declared a Saint.
