Five Things To Remember On Oct. 16

1. Catholic News Service reports on Pope Francis' continued push for an evangelization emphasis in the Church. Cindy Wooden's story notes that "The church can describe itself as 'apostolic' only if it shares the Gospel with the world, remaining faithful to the teaching of the apostles and living out Gospel values, Pope Francis said.

2. Today is the 35th anniversary of the election of Blessed Pope John Paul II and our Facebook followers are sharing how he impacted their lives.

3. Nov. 2 will be the Commemoration of All Souls' Day. Also on the USCCB Facebook page, we'd like to remember with a photo album and pray for people who were special to you that have died during the last year. People can send a photo of this special person along with a remembrance of six words or less. Email a photo to with the subject line "All Souls' Day" by Oct. 20.

4. Have you subscribed to the USCCB's Youtube channel?

5. God loves you.
