With Saint André

During his lifetime, numerous healings were attributed to the prayerful intercessions of Saint André Bessette, as the sick and troubled people of Montreal flocked to him each day. He was deeply devoted to Saint Joseph and blest with tremendous humility. Amazed at what his prayer accomplished, André would say simply, “I am nothing…only a tool in the hands of Providence, a lowly instrument at the service of Saint Joseph...God chose the most ignorant one. If there were anyone more ignorant than I, God would have chosen him instead of me."

How to embrace my own lowliness?
