Welcome to

St. Joseph's Catholic Church - Galliano, LA

Our community is blessed with a beautiful and bountiful environment in the South Lafourche area. Our church parish is one of many belonging to the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux. Once inside the church, we are greeted with a wooden sign reminding us of the community’s Cajun French heritage. It says “Je suis le Chemin, la Verite, et la Vie.” This translates to “I am the Way, the Truth, and The Life”. The Mission of St. Joseph's Parish is to be a loving community of people, who are formed by the Word of God and by the celebration of the Eucharist and the other Sacraments, and who reach out to all those in need.

Bishop Barron on “Doctor Strange”

Scott Derickson’s new film, “Doctor Strange”, has received rave reviews for its special-effects, its compelling story-telling, and the quality of its actors, but I would like to focus on the spirituality implicit in it. Dr. Strange is far from a satisfying presentation of the spiritual order, but it represents a significant step in the right direction, which proves especially helpful for our time.

Bishop Barron on Satellites and Praying to the Saints

While helping me with a tech problem, Word on Fire content director, Brandon Vogt, described modern internet processing as analogous to the Church's intercessory prayer with the communion of saints. With this comparison in mind, here is a little reflection on prayer and the 'communio sanctorum'.

Bishop Robert Barron Weekly Homilies

“Tell John What You See and Hear”

Our Gospel for this weekend is taken from the eleventh chapter of the Gospel of Matthew, where John the Baptist has been arrested and wonders from his jail cell whether Jesus “is the one or should we look for another?" When this inquiry is conveyed to Jesus, the Lord does not respond theoretically, but rather by pointing to things that are happening, namely, God's grace is making people whole again. “Go tell John what you see and hear".

Eden, The Mountain, and The One Who Baptizes with Fire

This week's readings take us to chapter 11 of the prophet Isaiah. Isaiah looks back to the garden of Eden and the world in right alignment with God, and then looks forward to the Messiah who will set right what has gone wrong in God's world. Sin interrupts right order, justice, and goodness. The righteous king will restore justice when he rules on his holy mountain.

The Mountain of the Lord

This week we enter into the great season of Advent. Our first reading from the prophet Isaiah describes how every nation streams towards God's holy mountain. As you enter the Advent season, think about this holy mountain. Is the mountain of the Lord higher than every other mountain for you? Do you stream toward it with your whole being?
