Meet our Pastor

Rev. David Broussard

Message from the Pastor

Dear Friends,

 Last Wednesday at Saint Martinville, I concelebrated the Mass marking the 250th anniversary of the establishment of the parish of Saint Martin de Tours, from which our own parish of St. Bernard was founded in 1847.  250 years!  That’s older than the nation!  The archbishop of Québec, Msgr. Gérald Cardinal Lacroix, was the principal celebrant and homilist, and in his talk, of course he highlighted the past…but he didn’t stay stuck in it.  He noted that God’s grace is available to people of every generation, and that He wasn’t out of the business of making saints.   The Cardinal said he’s fond of quoting one of our American Christian authors (as I do also) Max Lucado, who wrote:  “God loves you just the way you are.  He really does!  But He loves you too much to leave you that way!”  I like that.  In our times, when the culture tells us to “live and let live”, God never simply settles for maintaining the status quo.  He’s always working (usually silently but powerfully) to change people for the better, and He welcomes us or anybody to join in the fight. 

That transformative power of God’s grace is beautifully celebrated in this weekend’s solemnity of Christ the King.  Allow Him, the gentle Master of the whole universe, Who long ago chose to take the likes of you and me as friends to continue to “work His magic” and exercise the control He has over us in all the kindness He can’t just help Himself from showing.  Here’s an old prayer that reminds US more than HIM that he’s, like an old friend of mine used to say, “the Boss of all bosses”:

Christ Jesus, Redeemer, I humbly acknowledge You as King of the universe and King of my heart.

All that exists has been made for You.

Make full use of Your rights over me.

I renew those vows I first made at my baptism by which I renounced the dark powers of satan and first claimed You as Lord and Savior.

I promised You then, Lord, to do all within my power and with the help of Your grace to live the life of a true Christian and to work within Your Church to honor Your Name and to defend Your sacred rights.

Again I offer You my poor efforts to acknowledge Your kingship over my own life and to help You to

establish in all gentleness the peaceful kingdom of Your Heart among all the peoples of this world.

Reign over me, sweet Master, and may my Queen, Your compassionate Mother, defend me and guide my steps until I am with Her and Your Father and the Spirit in that kingdom of Your mercy and love, where You live and reign forever and ever.  Amen.

Have a Blessed Week!
