Prayers of Brother Andre
Novena to Brother Andre

Brother André, you always helped others.
Help us to become more attentive to those around us.

People constantly asked you for favours.
Teach us to give rather than to receive.

With your aid, we can help in every possible way
all those with whom we come in contact,
and can find joy in being truly generous.

Josette Massy
Grand Associate of Brother André

St. Lucy of Syracuse

Saint Lucy, your beautiful name signifies light. By the light of faith which God bestowed upon you, increase and preserve this light in my soul so that I may avoid evil, be zealous in the performance of good works, and abhor nothing so much as the blindness and the darkness of evil and of sin.
By your intercession with God, obtain for me perfect vision for my bodily eyes and the grace to use thme for God's greater honor and glory and the salvation of all men.
Saint Lucy, virgin and martyr, hear my prayers and obtain my petitions. Amen.
