sure shot

another post promoting all things IEC2012 in the Archdiocese of Ottawa.

flowing from yesterday's post on fatherhood, i recall other words that Brother André often said to people.  he was a father to many, helping everyone on the journey of holiness.  that pilgrimage, that journey is difficult if it was not for the sure shot:  God, in Our Lord Jesus Christ, truly present in the Most Holy Eucharist.  we all have our wounds, and we fall down at times.  in order to walk upright, let us continue to lean on the the Sacrament of Confession, and on the Sacrament of the Eucharist.
St. André de Montréal disait souvent, « allez à Joseph ». Nous avons priez St. Joseph cette semaine, et plusieurs sont rencontrer à l'Oratoire St. Joseph pour priez le patron de l'Église Universelle, le patron du Canada, et le patron principale de notre diocèse. Demandons son intercession durant ce temps Carême pour suivre son, de grandir dans l'amour de Marie, et de Dieu en Jésus Christ, qui est réellement présent dans l'Eucharistie. Le frère André aimait que les gens vivent en harmonie avec leur foi. Il leur disait souvent : « Vous mangez trois fois par jour pour soutenir votre corps; alors, allez communier surtout pour soutenir votre âme! »

St. André of Montreal often said, "go to Joseph". We prayed to St. Joseph this week, and many went on pilgrimage to St. Joseph's Oratory to pray the patron of the Univeral Church, the patron of Canada, and the principale patron of our diocese. Let us ask his intercession during this time of Lent to follow his example, of always growing in our love for Mary, and for God, in Our Lord Jesus Christ, who is truly present in the Eucharist. Brother André always wanted people to live in harmony with their faith. He often told them, "You eat three times a day to nourish your bodies; therefore, go to communion, in order to nourish your soul."
peace out.
