Five Things To Remember On May 14

1. Masses in Washington and Baltimore will frame the second Fortnight for Freedom, which will last June 21-July 4. Archbishop William E. Lori of the Archdiocese of Baltimore said, "The need for prayer, education, and action in defense of religious liberty has never been greater. The Fortnight for Freedom exists to meet that need. This year's Fortnight occurs just weeks before August 1, when the administration's mandate coercing us to violate our deeply-held beliefs will be enforced against most religious non-profits. During the Fortnight the Supreme Court's decisions on the definition of marriage will likely be handed down as well. Those decisions could have a profound impact on religious freedom for generations to come." More information is available at fortnight4freedom.org.

2. Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl project was a rousing success, raising millions of dollars to combat hunger. See how people's generosity is changing lives.

3. There are 70 days left until millions of young people go to World Youth Day in Rio. Find out all you need to know at usccb.org/wyd.

4. Pope Francis' morning homilies are very quotable and have people buzzing on social media. Today, he offered, "Satan always rips us off, always!"

5. God loves you.
