Recent directions from higher up, including Pope Francis and Bishop Malloy of Rockford have suggested that we need to look and work beyond abortion. This does not mean that abortion is any less evil. But it does suggest that it is time for us to go beyond abortion and deal with the battle over choice replacing good and evil, which is the primary cause of abortion and most social problems.

Day after day they speak, and night after night they reveal knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard.” - Psalm 19:1-3
Though none of us have ever seen these great artists, isn’t the Mona Lisa empirical proof there was a Leonardo da Vinci? And, isn’t the Sistine Chapel all the proof you would ever need to know there was a Michelangelo? Continue reading →
ProLifeCorner.com- The following article is one of the most sickening and disgusting we’ve ever read. This only proves the evil and demonic attributes of abortion.

And pray this atrocity has not and will not come to America. Continue reading →
Beaumont, Alberta, Canada- By Mark Pickup- THE BIG LIES OF OUR AGE VERSUS THE TRUTH FOUND IN JESUS CHRIST. My father’s generation knew the Holocaust of the Nazis. The holocaust of abortion and soon euthanasia and assisted suicide hangs over mine.
Nazi propaganda Minister Josef Goebbel’s guiding maxim was “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will come to believe it.” The spread the lie of Aryan superiority and the their dominance posed by the Jews. The mass genocide of 6 million Jews started with of Germany’s euthanasia program of their mentally and physically disabled people. Killing their disabled and sick was a training ground for the final solution. Continue reading →

Beaumont, Alberta,Canada- Mark Pickup- Pro-euthanasia rhetoric loaded with euphemisms to disguise reality. I want to address the rhetoric used by people who promote euthanasia and assisted suicide. Those who control language control public discourse and set agendas that dictate behaviour that might not be acceptable in other contexts.
It is a confusing time. The culture in which we live is telling the incurably ill and severely disabled they have a right to assisted suicide while the healthy population deserves suicide prevention. Continue reading →
Rockford Il.- ProLifeCorner.com- On April 7th- Human Life International is sponsoring the Pilgrimage of the Black Madonna in North America. A replica of the Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa is traveling from Ocean to Ocean in Defense of Life. This international campaign started on June 14, 2012, when a small band of Catholic and Orthodox faithful left Vladivostok on the Pacific coast of Russia with the Icon and travelled over 30,000 kilometers to Fatima, Portugal. She arrived in North America on August 24, 2013, at St. Clements Island in Maryland. She has journeyed throughout the Eastern United States and Canada. She was at the March for Life in Washington, D.C. and on Monday, April 7, 2014, Our Lady will arrive at Holy Family. She will be our guest for one day.

At 7:00 we will have another evening Mass followed by a talk by Fr. Peter West who is escorting the Icon. We will also have Fr. West for Mass at 8:30 Tuesday morning and then say farewell to the Black Madonna as they leave for Rock Island. Continue reading →
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. We beat the MS.” It was of those revelations of life when the experiences of decades melt into a single moment: The room filled with thunderous silence LaRee was right. We rose above the disease.
I gazed toward the fireplace and became lost in the flames. Our terrifying journey with MS did not drive us apart, it drew us closer. In the midst of the consuming fire of a terrible disease, we embraced each other tighter when the flames grew higher…. Continue reading →
