Meet our Pastor

Rev. F. David Broussard

Message from the Pastor

Dear Friends,

“I’ve got friends in low places…”  When Garth Brooks sang that song, I don’t think he had Purgatory in mind.  But just as we all have friends in high places—the Saints—so, the “Poor Souls”, or the “Holy Souls”, as we’re want to call them, are asking us just for a little something once in a while.  “Buddy, could you spare a prayer?”  This entire month of November is dedicated by the Church to remembering them, praying for them, and helping them to achieve the very Glory of God…to “go to the Father’s House”, as Saint John Paul whispered as his last words.  The Catechism says:  “From the earliest times, the Church has offered prayers for the dead, particularly the Eucharistic Sacrifice.  She also recommends alms, the gaining of indulgences and penances for their benefit.”  You know, you can learn a lot about Life in a graveyard.  On my recent trip, we stopped at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington to watch the Changing of the Guard.  Yet, just as impressive as that and the eternal flame at JFK’s tomb were, so were the thousands of headstones—all in perfect alignment—marking the “final” resting places of so many who gave so much.  Final?  Our Faith assures us that they aren’t “final”, but that the dead shall be raised…not only spiritually but physically!  There will be a lot of prime real estate available again in the Kingdom of the New Heavens and the New Earth, when (with new bodies) we’re with the Lord!  We’re just passing through, folks, and we can all be of an immense help to lots of friends (this side of the dirt and the other) along the way, all the while consoling them and ourselves with the fact that the best is yet to come!  People chisel all kinds of things on their tombstones, but what I once read on that of a little three-year-old girl who died back in 1830 in Grand Coteau expresses not only her parent’s faith but our hope:  “Our loss is her gain”.  Have a blessed week!
