1. Catholic News Service takes you inside the life a mother and family in need and how Catholic outreach services have aided them during tough times. Read their story and watch the video below.
2. During the next few weeks we will be sharing videos about why the Catholic Church reaches out to other faiths. You can watch all of those videos on our Youtube channel.
3. To honor the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, for the third year in a row, we’ll post a photo album of people's pets on October 4 on our English and Spanish Facebook pages. St. Francis is the patron of animals, and parishes across the country celebrate his feast with animal blessings. Send a picture of your pet to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 30 with the subject line “pet photo.” We've received many photos already.
4. Pope Francis seems to be keeping to a Rule of Three when he speaks.
5. God loves you.
