This is wonderful news! I've been to the Oratory of Saint Joseph -- twice. Wonderful atmosphere of prayer and devotion. The second time I went with a non-Catholic friend, who was quite impressed. I have a biography of Brother Andre that I bought at the shrine.

Pray for us, St. Andre, for Notre Dame -- especially Fr. Jenkins!
