Throwback: L’ Oratoire Saint Joseph, Montreal

I took these pictures in 2011 on a visit to this beautiful basilica, The Oratory of Saint Joseph, in Montreal, Quebec. Hubby and I attended a mass there.

The oratory is a minor basilica. It is an impressive structure in Italian Renaissance architectural style.

Brother André Bessette who built the basilica dedicated it to Saint Joseph who he credits for his miracles. Brother André is now Saint André. He was canonized in 2010 by Pope Benedict XVI.
