Five Things To Remember On June 13

1. The Fortnight for Freedom will begin a week from today with a kickoff Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Baltimore. Archbishop William E. Lori of Baltimore is the chairman of the Ad Hoc Committee on Religious Liberty for the USCCB, and will celebrate the Mass.

2. Bishop Edward Burns of Juneau, has taken to Twitter in recent months. He tweeted today, "The best gift a father can give his children is to love their mother. Happy Fathers Day!"

3. It has been three months since Pope Francis was elected and it coincides with news that that his Spanish Twitter account now has more followers (2.59 million) than even his popular English-speaking account (2.58 million).

4. In case you missed it earlier this week, another $1.3 million was pledged by the USCCB Subcommittee on the Church in Latin America for church reconstruction efforts in earthquake-damaged Haiti.

5.  God loves you.
