Meet our Pastor

Rev. David Broussard

Message from the Pastor

Dear Friends,

Thanks again for the great, prayerful and generous support of our Diocesan Centennial Campaign, and to all the many volunteers who helped this past weekend.  Blessings!

Someone told me recently:  “It’s not the Donkey or the Elephant that’s going to save us...but the LAMB!”  Right on, brother!

Well, the political conventions are starting this week...and all the bluster that goes with them.  Pray for the safety of all involved.  In this tense political/ethnic/religious/ideological climate we’re in, almost anything (bad) can happen.  When President Obama first was elected, he was called a “pragmatist”, somebody who has the philosophy of “what-ever works is good”.  It’s the way a lot of people operate these days.  But, is that all that guides our actions and relationships in the world?  Do I have these or those “friends” only to get something out of them?  Do I put into work or school or family just enough to make it all work?  Do I pray to God only when I need something?  You see, the “pragmatic” approach is the “minimalist” approach, but there’s got to be more to life than that

 I know we all like to keep things simple, like:  2+2=4.  There’s only one right answer to that...and an infinite amount of wrong answers.  But life is not always practical”; in fact, life can get down right messy...but pretty great at the same time, like:  1 cross + 3 nails = 4-given!  There’s nothing “pragmatic” about the Passion...nothing “practical” about the depths of God’s love for you and me.  He just GIVES … probably lots of time knowing that He’s going to get little-to-nothing in return.  And that’s a mark of a follower of His, too… whoever we are, wherever we go, whatever we do.  Our good patron Saint Bernard said:  “The measure with which to love God (...and His people) is to love Him (...and His people) without measure.” 

 Have a blessed week.
