Blessed André Bessette (1845-1937)
Brother André expressed a saint?s faith by a lifelong devotion to St.
Joseph. Sickness and weakness dogged André from birth. He was the eighth
of 12 children born to a French Canadian couple near Montreal. Adopted at
12, when both parents had died, he became a farmhand. Various trades
followed: shoemaker, baker, blacksmith?all failures. He was a factory
worker in the United States during the boom times of the Civil War. At 25,
he applied for entrance into the Congregation of the Holy Cross. After a
year?s novitiate, he was not admitted because of his weak health. But with
an extension and the urging of Bishop Bourget (see Marie-Rose Durocher,
October 6), he was finally received. He was given the humble job of
doorkeeper at Notre Dame College in Montreal, with additional duties as
sacristan, laundry worker and messenger. ?When I joined this community,
the superiors showed me the door, and I remained 40 years.?   For more,

Beloved, if God so loved us, we also must love one another. No one has
ever seen God. Yet, if we love one another, God remains in us, and his
love is brought to perfection in us. ~1 John 4:11-18

About the fourth watch of the night, he came toward them walking on the sea.
He meant to pass by them. But when they saw him walking on the sea, they
thought it was a ghost and cried out. They had all seen him and were
terrified. But at once he spoke with them, ?Take courage, it is I, do not
be afraid!? He got into the boat with them and the wind died down. They
were completely astounded. ~Mark 6:47-52

Scripture for the Day: http://www.usccb.org/nab/

Jesus calls us to love one another. He calms the storms in our lives as
well.  We strive to walk in His footsteps. He is constantly faithful to us
and takes a way our fear.  When we rely on the Lord we too can be
completely astounded.

.=: P R A Y E R    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=.

I pray that I may follow in Jesus' footsteps and love those around me.  I
pray that I can trust in Jesus' presence and know that he will keep me
safe and calm the storms in my life.

We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life.
We pray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and their families
at home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the
courage and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for
those who have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the
most. Have a good day!

May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!

Father Pat
