Today is Canada’s patronal feast day. It’s especially meaningful given the coming canonization of Br. André of Montréal. Please pray for one of our friars who is having kidney problems. He is quite devoted to St. Joseph. Together we can pray that he, André and all the Canadian saints can help.
Another reason today’s feast is more meaningful is the role of fathers in our lives. Having just been to Above Rocks in Jamaica, I cannot tell you how much fathers are missed. St. Joseph can be such a powerful role model for us.
