A replica of the Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa is traveling from Ocean to Ocean in Defense of Life.

Beaumont, Alberta,Canada- By Mark Pickup- It was a quiet March evening. My wife, LaRee, was sitting in her favorite chair beside the fireplace that you see in the photo above. She was knitting while I was writing a post for this blog and listening to J.S.Bach’s “Saint Matthew Passion”. Something occurred to me. I said, “It was 30 years ago yesterday that I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.” LaRee paused, put her knitting down on her lap, looked over her reading glasses and said, “We won.

ProLifeCorner.com- Matthew 6: 24-34- “Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for a day is its own evil.”
In today’s gospel, Jesus exhorts us to go about our daily tasks serenely and not to worry uselessly about what happened yesterday or what may happen tomorrow.

Otherwise, we will not be able to fulfill God’s Will in a particular moment, because we are either looking back on yesterday, which has already passed, or worrying over tomorrow which may never come.
