I really don't care about the Olympics, an orgy of flesh-worship based on pagan religion, and a further financial burden to our country and what have you. I get annoyed as people keep telling me "we" won another medal. Well I have something else that I find more exciting that "we" now have.
Papa Benny said this week that Canada is getting another saint! Brother Andre! (He even shares my name) of Montreal
I love his story. He was an orphan and he became a lay brother in the Church, and worked as a janitor, and prayed for people and they were healed by God through him. Just the thought that God has and does work through the most everyday people, in the lowest stations of life in such a miraculous way. It inspires me, and reminds me of Jesus (which is what the saints are meant to).
I'm excited because our Newman club is thinking about doing a pilgrimage on the day he is officially canonized.
