Here is my prayer from yesterday’s parish bulletin:

Saint Andre,

Welcome me at the threshold,

When I am lost.


Offer me tenderness and solace,

When I am tired.


Remind me I belong

When I am orphaned.


Guide me to Saint Joseph

When I am far from home.


Bring forgiveness to my heart

When I feel most unworthy.


Reveal Jesus’ healing touch

When I hurt and am alone.


Touch my pain,

When I wait to be healed.


Saint Andre Bessette, pray for us!


Blessings to you,

Fr. Ron

  1. I subscribe to the ND Gospel reflections so I had the joy of reading this reflection twice today. I learned of him on a Gray Lines bus tour of Montreal and was very moved.
