The Compassion of Brother André

Layout 1“The two aspects of a miracle are therefore God’s compassion for human suffering and faith in God’s presence in our lives. Brother André prayed the stations of the cross every day because he saw in Jesus the God who shared in our suffering and who meets us in our suffering today.

Joseph Pichette, a friend and confident of Brother André’s, wrote, ‘I never brought a sick person to Brother André without that person returning home enriched. Some were healed, and others died some time later; but Brother André had brought them peace of mind.'”
