Meet our Pastor

Rev. F. David Broussard

Message from the Pastor

Dear Friends,

“The Rosary,” Saint John Paul II said, “helps us to contemplate the Face of Jesus through the eyes of Mary.”  I just love that.  This whole month of October is dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary, and this Tuesday, the 7th, is a special feast in Her honor, first instituted to thank Her for a Christian victory over the Muslims way back in 1571.  Like it or not, history has a way of repeating itself, and, like or not, we find ourselves again in a Crusade-like struggle of the Cross-versus-the-Crescent.  Their side is still using some of the same old tactics of terror and the sword.  But sadly, I think our side has largely dropped its most powerful and effective weapon…Mary’s “battle beads”, the Rosary.  Whose side will win this time remains to be seen.  We, perhaps, have little control over what goes down on the world scene; closer to home, however, our destinies might be more in our own hands, as well as God’s.  That little string of beads, that little garland of roses, offered to Mary that She might offer to God, has lassoed untold graces for millions of believers over the centuries, and it should always be in our arsenal for spiritual warfare also.  But it’s not only a weapon but a comfort.  The slow rhythm of the prayers serves to bring consolation at wakes, peace in frustrating traffic, and is one of the simplest methods by which to meditate more deeply on the most profound mysteries of life and faith.  I recently asked a young man from the Parish about what went down in Oklahoma City a couple of Sundays ago, when he and an area group went to prayerfully protest the satanic “Black Mass” held there (albeit a lot smaller than originally intended).  He said it went great, but he was “baffled” by local groups of Protestants/Evangelicals who appeared on the scene to “protest” them for praying the Rosary!  How crazy is that?  Steps away, there’s a group defaming and blaspheming Christ Himself, then fellow “believers” show up to harass those who are trying to do something about it!  Are we really all on the same team?  May Our Lady make it happen one day.  Have a blessed week!
