Brother André Marie, M.I.C.M.“After a somewhat worldly life, he was struck down one day by lightning while riding on a horse. He cried out to God, like Saint Paul, “Lord, what wilt Thou have me do?” He heard a voice from Heaven saying to him, “Turn from evil unto good.” https://t.co/WEkF7WBavp12 hours ago 6 21
