Saint André Bessette on God

Saint André Bessette

Saint André Bessette was a 19th century French Catholic religious brother with the Congregation of the Holy Cross. He experienced ill-health throughout his life and consigned himself in humility to serve the sick and the poor. Bessette knew suffering. He too was sick and poor. Perhaps this explains his insights into God.
There is so little distance between heaven and earth that God always hears us. Nothing but a thin veil separates us from God.
— St. André Bessette

Lord our God, friend of the lowly, who gave your servant, Saint Andre Bessette, a special devotion to Saint Joseph and a deep commitment to the indigent and the afflicted, help us through his intercession to follow his example of prayer and love and so come to share with him in your glory. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, reigns with you and with the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
