Celebration for St. Andre Bissette, Oct 30

A busload of bishops were able to travel to Montreal after the plenary in Cornwal to participate in the celebration for the canonization of Bro. Andre Bissette, a humble prayerful man considered a great healer. Buses drove us right onto the playing field. Cardinal Turcotte of Montreal told the crowd that God uses saints to speak to us today, and that everyone seems to know about Bro. Andre. Here a relic of the saith is brought forward for display. Usually it is only rock stars and sports heros who fill this stadium. What a statement about the man himself this celebration was.

Here we see the main altar, the introductory rites, and the crowd in the Olympic Stadium that numbered around 50,000.
