L'oratoire St Joseph du Mont Royal (St. Joseph's Oratory of Mount Royal) is recognized as one of the great spiritual centers of the world and attracts more than two million visitors a year. Many are simply curious, but some pilgrims climb the steps of the Oratory on their knees, hoping that God will answer their prayers. The Oratory's magnificent copper dome, which can be seen for several kilometers around, is second in size only to St Peter's. Inside, it contains a basilica, the Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament, Brother Andre's tomb and two museums in his honor.
