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.

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.

ProLifeCorner.com- The culture of death is attacking the family unit, now more than any other time in our history.
In today’s video we are asked what is a family? The answers are in Holy Scripture. In the family, each one of us have a responsibility to ourselves and the other family members. We are also shown how our families are part of the domestic church. This is a call for us to be not only family but to be a holy family using Jesus, Mary, and Joseph as our examples of a true Holy Family. Continue reading →
Beaumont Alberta Canada-By Mark Pickup- John Keats (1795-1821) said, “I have loved the principle of beauty in all things, and if I had time, I would have made myself remembered.” He underestimated the impact of his short life. Although John Keats suffered from tuberculosis and died at the age of 25, he is generally considered to be one of England’s greatest poets. His poetry is unparalleled in dignity, melody and sheer richness of imagery. Continue reading →
