Meet our Pastor

Rev. David Broussard

Message from the Pastor

Dear Friends,

I heard a good one recently:  “When a couple is arguing over who loves who more, the one that gives up is the real winner.”  Sweet.  Ah, marriage is not so much about “giving up”, or “giving in” but just “giving”. 

A couple of Sundays ago, when the Gospel was of the Wedding Feast at Cana, wasn’t it a consolation to hear again that Our Lord’s first miracle was at a wedding?  Preparing for not only the “big day” but for all that comes after it is, and always has been, very important, but it seems like the old ways of doing things are just no longer cutting it.  They were adequate, perhaps, when young people were maybe a little more “mature”/secure in their own character and in their walk of faith, when the majority of kids hailed from “intact” homes and good Christian marriages.  But now?!  We can do better…we have to do better.

With this new year comes a new approach to marriage prep here at St. Bernard’s, and I’m asking you parents and family members to be on board and lend your prayerful support. 

A new program has been devised (with God’s inspiration, I think) by a great young local couple, Ryan and Mary Rose Verrett.  They call it  “Witness to Love”, and already it’s borne some pretty amazing fruit.  It involves the engaged couple, after initially meeting with the priest/deacon, choosing a “mentor couple” whom they admire in the parish or area and with whom they will develop a personal and spiritual bond over the ensuing six or more months before the wedding.  They’ll eat together, talk, pray and learn/witness together, all the while growing in their discernment of God’s Will for their lives. 

It will take courage and commitment and more than just a frivolous string of wedding showers. Tool and pantry and beer and lingerie showers: all that—while fun—do little to nothing to help prepare a couple for a life with one another and with God and kids.  For more info, visit their website: www.witnesstolove.org or go to our website, www.stbernardch.com, click on Helpful Links and choose Witness to Love.

Have a blessed week!
