The story of Brother Andre and the Shrine on Mount Royal in Montreal, Canada. Brother Andre was a Canadian religious...a member of the Holy Cross Brothers who are a part of the Congregation of the Holy Cross...a Roman Catholic order. This book is about Brother Andre's life all the way through his death in 1937, and was partially written to help move Brother Andre along the path to sainthood in the church. The story also brings in his devotion to St. Joseph and his efforts to have a shrine built to St. Joseph on the slopes of Mount Royal in Montreal, where today there stands a magnificent Oratory. Published in 1959, there was no way the author could know that in October 2010 Brother Andre would become Saint Andre Bessette upon canonization by Pope Benedict XVI in Rome.
