Former St. Anthony pastor remembered for prayerful missions
A native of New Orleans, Msgr. Guste was ordained a Priest on June 3, 1950, and he was then appointed Pastor of St. Anthony’s Parish in Luling from 1964-1973.
Monsignor Guste participated in the establishment of the Catholic Charismatic Movement, leading countless missions, retreats and pilgrimages at home, across the U.S., and abroad. In the late 1980’s, he established the Living Waters Ministry, offering inspiration, Spirit-filled guidance, comfort and love over the radio with a daily installment.
Early in his career as a Catholic priest, Fr. Guste authored the booklet “For Men of Good Will,” promoting equality and justice for all. Later, he penned “Mary at my Side,” sharing with sensitivity the role of the Blessed Mother in his life. In his theological study, “The Gift of the Church,” Monsignor Guste affirms the need for, the love of, and the meaning of the Catholic Church, and addresses common objections and questions about the Church today.
Monsignor Guste is preceded in death by his father, William J. Guste, and his mother, Marie Louise Alciatore Guste. He is survived by his brothers and their wives: William J. Guste, Jr. and Dorothy Schutten Guste, Roy Francis Guste and Beverly Taylor Guste, and Father Jules Guste, founder of the Society of our Mother of Peace. Survivors also include 29 loving nieces and nephews. With deep devotion and affection, he lovingly baptized, married, and cherished every member of his numerous clan.
Visitation was held August 7 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church with interment following in St. Louis No. 3 Cemetery. Arrangements were by Jacob Schoen and Son Funeral Home.
