Blessed Frederic has all the qualities of a born communicator. He transmits his enthusiasm to the crowds, his confidence, his fascination for the life of Jesus. On the chapter of confidence and motivation, a hundred years later he still has what is needed to motivate the youth of today.
His pastime was to conduct pilgrims while praying and singing. What he started in the Holy Land with the international pilgrims over there, he continued in a remarkable way in Canada.
He greatly contributed to the development of the pilgrimages to Saint-Anne de Beaupre and the Oratory of Saint-Joseph-of-Mount-Royal. When the Oblates of Mary Immaculate took charge of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Cape in 1902 the statistics varied between 30,000 and 40,000 people per year.
