The Gift: Living Fully, Dying Naturally


About the Gift: Living Fully, Dying Naturally 

The idea of The Gift was born at the CMDS Canada annual meetings in Edmonton in early May 2013 and has come to life before our eyes. From the beginning it was clear that we needed to explain, in very human terms, how life is a gift from God and needs to be cherished. We knew this message had to be “from the heart” in order to help people see in real terms how faith in Christ can help people live through life’s challenges, especially those that come with the loss of a loved one.We are grateful to producer Nicole Myshak and the JPII Media Institute, of Halifax, Nova Scotia for their hard work and dedication to the vision of this project. The Gift was filmed in Kentville and Halifax, Nova Scotia during the summer of 2013 and released publicly on September 28, 2013. Dr. Catherine McNally and Dr. John Sumarah shared from their experience, offering a highly personal glimpse into some remarkable lives lived. Thank you for your vulnerability and your authenticity.The Gift would not have been possible without the financial and prayer support of CMDS Canada members, for which we are truly grateful. The way the project came together so beautifully, so organically and so quickly is truly “A Gift” from God.
