Today is the last in our series of Sunday reflections on Brother André Bessette as next Sunday we will be celebrating his canonization, and we will have blog posts from pilgrims in Rome for that historic day! So stay tuned! Our reflection this Sunday has an international flair, coming from Fr. Jose Ahumada, C.S.C., who is the rector of St. George's College in Santiago, Chile.
Being a humble religious of Holy Cross, he was for forty years the doorman of a college in Montreal. He received with affection all the people that went to the college. Brother André never felt bored or frustrated in his job, which for others would have been too routine. How many times has that happened to us, that after a few years at a job we feel exhausted and we desire for other more interesting challenges. Brother André knew about perseverance and how to find meaning in what others would think as the most insignificant tasks.
