On January 6, 1937, the death of a humble doorkeeper for a boys' college drew over a million people to Montreal for his funeral. For 40 years, Brother André Bessette of the Congregation of Holy Cross welcomed people at the door and became known as a miraculous healer. God's Doorkeeper looks at the heart and legacy of Brother André -as a man of prayer, of hospitality, and of compassion; a man who draws people in to experience a God who is love. Brother Andre also had a tremendous devotion to St. Joseph that he shared with all who came in contact with him. On October 17, 2010, Brother André became the first male Canadian-born saint and the first saint for the Congregation of Holy Cross. He is living proof that "it is with the smallest brushes that the divine artist paints the most beautiful pictures."
The film features interviews from Montreal, Rome, and the United States-with people who knew him and others who continue Brother André's work today. It also includes footage of the Beatification and Canonization ceremonies in Rome and the celebrations in Canada, with footage of the unforgettable events of Brother André's road to sainthood. Widescreen. Approx. 60 minutes.

DD4 Stars Out Of 5INSPIRINGMarch 14, 2016DDQuality: 3Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3A good documentary overall. It was a bit disjointed in sequence, going back and forth between various things, it was somewhat repetitive in interviews (showing some of the same people and places more than once), and it even had an ad for this video during it (probably from the original TV program it was shown on in Canada). I was disappointed that it didn't have more background and history about the events of Br. Andre's life, such as that his parents died when he was young and other interesting facts -- I read about his life on Wikipedia before seeing the video, which was helpful and inspiring. I found that I had to give an intro it to a group before I showed it, and explain some things to them during it based on my previous research, or else it would have been hard to fully understand.
