Five Things To Remember On Oct. 15
1. The U.S. bishops will vote on five liturgical items presented by the Committee on Divine Worship during the annual fall General Assembly http://www.onefamilyinmission.org/society-propfaith/world-mission-sunday.html of the USCCB Nov. 11-14, at the Baltimore Waterfront Marriott Hotel. Among the items is the use of the Spanish-language Misal Romano from Mexico to serve as the base text for the U.S. Spanish-language missal. Mexico’s Conference of Bishops received a recognitio, or permission from Rome to use the text at the beginning of 2013. Plans call for a U.S. version of the Misal Romano to be available by the end of 2014 or spring 2015.
2. World Mission Sunday is October 20, 2013. Learn about this day set aside each year for Catholics worldwide to recommit themselves to the Church's missionary activity through prayer and sacrifice.
3. Catholic News Service looks at how most Catholics aren't looking for spirituality online, but our Facebook followers shared why they do today.
4. Domestic violence shatters the peace that should reside in relationships and especially in the family, the domestic church. Learn what the Church teaches about combating this problem as we focus on it in October.
5. God loves you.
