St. André Bessette coloring page: January 6th
André was a brother of the Congregation of the Holy Cross. When André first came to the Holy Cross Brothers, he had a note from his pastor that said, “I am sending you a saint.” André had a very hard childhood and many struggles in his life as a brother. His challenges began as an infant, when he was born in such poor health that an emergency baptism was required. After his father’s sudden death and his mother’s death soon after, André became orphaned at the age of 12. Despite the constant struggles in his life, André focused on God, remaining especially devoted to Saint Joseph.
He was canonized St. André of Montreal in 2010 by Pope Benedict XVI.
