Five Things To Remember On April 10

1.  Tomorrow is a day long-awaited for many Catholics and Americans. Father Emil Kapaun will be award the Medal of Honor by President Obama at the White House. Father Kapaun died during Korean War in a prison camp. The Wichita Eagle has done a great job chronicling how this honor came to happen.

2. Pope Francis tweeted twice today, saying, "Being a Christian is not just about following commandments: it is about letting Christ take possession of our lives and transform them." He also said, "If we act like children of God, knowing that he loves us, our lives will be made new, filled with serenity and joy." Follow him at @Pontifex.

3. The second Fortnight for Freedom will happen June 21-July 4. The campaign was successful in drawing attention to many religious liberty struggles happening across the country. The challenges remain this year, especially on the HHS mandate front. Learn more about the Fortnight.

4. Each day the USCCB shares the daily readings. Today's Gospel offers a reminder of what Catholics believe and it's a hopeful message. "God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life."

5. God loves you.
