Redeemer S2E8 – Quiet and Hidden (Unlike Adam’s Thoughts) with Michelle Bessette

Holly, Adam, and Javier have a conversation with our fellow Marian Servant Michelle Bessette, who is related by family to St. André Bessette. This fun and casual conversation covers Michelle’s journey to know St. Joseph by developing her relationship with St. Andre Bessette. We also talk about what it means to ask the saints for intercession, developing a relationship with our friends in Heaven, and how the life of St. Andre Bessette mirrored that of St. Joseph in its humility and effectiveness in directing people to Christ.
