Footnote 44: Brother Andre


Saint André Bessette, known to millions simply as Brother André, was the porter at Notre Dame College (High School) in Montreal, Quebec. He is the first canonized saint of the Congregation of the Holy Cross (the CSC’s), which also founded Notre Dame University.

Footnote looks at Brother André’s devotion to the spirit of the CSC’s, as expressed by the order’s founder, Fr. Basil Moreau, the year before Notre Dame was founded in Indiana. Has the university lived up to the spirit as Brother André did?
