Five Things To Remember On Aug. 12
1. Today we debuted a statement on Labor Day for this year by Bishop Stephen Blaire, chairman of the Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development of the USCCB. Bishop Blaire focuses the statement primarily on the growing disparity in the income of U.S. workers. Read the complete Labor Dat statement.
2. Also, be sure to read blogs throughout this week addressing several economic issues in the Labor Day statement. First up: Beating the student debt crunch.
3. Last week Ken Hackett, former head of Catholic Relief Services, was confirmed as the next U.S. ambassador to the Vatican. Get to know a bit more about Hackett in this Catholic Review interview.
4. Recently, Pope Francis' tweets have been tackling the importance of a parish and Church community. On Saturday, he reminded his followers: "One cannot separate Christ and the Church. The grace of Baptism gives us the joy of following Christ in and with the Church."
5. God loves you.
