Pilgrimage Highlight: St. Joseph’s Oratory, Montreal
St. Joseph’s Oratory is young in the history of Church Basilicas. Its founder, Br. Andre Bessette, was Canonized to sainthood by Pope Benedict XVI in October of 2010, and the basillica was approved for construction during his lifetime, and completed after his death.
Saint Andre Bessette, himself a renowned miracle worker, payed special tribute throughout his life to a saint who is so very important to our age: Joseph, the foster father of our Lord.
During this time of great tribulation, when the identity of the father is under attack from every direction, and so many men are seeking genuine role model father figures, St. Andre Bessette directs us to Saint Joseph with this accomplishment of spiritual grandeur worthy of the man who raised God in the person of Jesus.
You can read more about the history of this remarkable basilica here. It is the final stop on our pilgrimage, where we will light candles for prayer intentions as so many pilgrims do before the statue of Saint Joseph (see the 3rd image below).
At the base of the basilica is the Crypt Church, which was completed during Br. Andre’s life, and where he spent so many hours in prayer. (see 4th image)
Pilgrimage Highlight: Notre Dame of Montreal
This sublime basilica cannot be missed! The beautiful architecture was designed by a prodigy Gothic architect from New York, James O’Donnel, who was an Anglican. Upon the completion of his work, at the end of his life, he converted to Catholicism and is now buried there.
Today, travel guides are unanimous that this is a top attraction of Montreal for tourists, if not the top.
