Five Things To Remember On Aug. 14

2. Today is the Feast of St. Maximilian Kolbe, a priest who sacrificed himself for a father while he was in a concentration camp. His is a truly inspiring story.
3. Vatican Radio reports that the Church is supporting reconciliation in the Central African Republic.

4. The financial troubles of Detroit have been in the news recently and the Catholic Church is helping many people in dire need there.
