Five Things To Remember On April 16
1. Cardinal Timothy Dolan, president of the USCCB, reacted to the Boston tragedy Monday, saying, "The growing culture of violence in our world and even in our country calls for both wise security measures by government officials and an examination by all of us to see what we can personally do to enhance peace and respect for one another in our world. "
Cardinal Dolan also recently debuted a new website at CardinalDolan.org.
2. Cardinal Sean O'Malley, Archbishop of Boston, has been traveling in the Hold Land during the last couple of days. Cardinal O'Malley said such events also show the capacity for good amongst people. "In the midst of the darkness of this tragedy we turn to the light of Jesus Christ, the light that was evident in the lives of people who immediately turned to help those in need today," he said."
3. Sister Mary Ann Walsh said immigration reform has long been a concern of the USCCB in her latest blog post.
4. Today is Pope-emeritus Benedict XVI's 86th birthday. In what has to be a first, Pope Francis called his predecessor to wish him a great birthday.
5. God loves you.
