Meet our Pastor

Rev. F. David Broussard

Message from the Pastor

Dear Friends,

“Shoo, fly, don’t bother me!”  Remember the old nursery rhyme ditty?  I’ve been humming it to myself a lot lately as I go (not-so-merrily) through the rectory splatting gnats and fruit-flies in any way I can.  It’s bordering on “invasion”, I tell you. 

I was reading just last Thursday, on the feast-day of our own good patron Saint Bernard, of a legend associated with him and the small French town of Foigny.  It seems the church and village were infested with flies, and the pastor and townsfolk called on the famous Bernard for help.  The holy man excommunicated the flies…and they all died!  Yeah, I tried it.  Let’s just say I’m not in the same league, OK.  But I’d welcome any home remedy or “Hint-From-Heloise” you might have. 

Isn’t funny how the littlest things can bother us the most, really get on our nerves?  It might be some little annoying habit of others; maybe it’s some small foible of our own…but they can drive us loony!  The saints were no different.  I remember reading how, in those irksome moments, they resorted to the power of internal prayer, to not let Satan rob their peace over the matter.  They (the saints) even went out of their way to make reparations for themselves and others and to build up within themselves an “arsenal” of fortitude and charity.  St. Therese ate her spinach—which she loathed; St. Bernadette kissed the floor several times a day in a spirit of humility.  I don’t know what’s your way of dealing with people’s ticks and bothersome little things, but if it’s bearing the good fruit of a little more patience and a little fewer “flare-ups”, then know that it’s God’s personal help to you.  And He says you’re doing “fine”. 

This weekend, St. James reminds us that “every perfect (…and perfecting…) gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights.”  He knows it’s hard not to “sweat the small stuff” sometimes, but He’s ready at a moment’s notice to help.  And, with Him, a little charity can go a long way (… but I’m not being charitable to them flies!)  Have a blessed week.
