Father Brandon Bernhard was ordained for the Diocese of Tyler but later discerned a call to be a Benedictine Monk in Norcia, Italy.  His religious name is Fr. Martin and he prays faithfully for all of us in the Diocese of Tyler.  Please say a prayer for Fr. Martin and his brothers, for their health and safety, for their strength in the Lord and for their prayers for all of us.
