Five Things To Remember On Oct. 17
1. Pope Francis spoke about prayer today and even tweeted about its importance in the fullness of a Christian's faith. He wrote: "Our prayer cannot be reduced to an hour on Sundays. It is important to have a daily relationship with the Lord."
2. Connect with Catholic social ministry professionals from around the country at the Catholic Social Ministry Gathering in Washington. Speakers will include John L. Allen Jr., senior correspondent for the National Catholic Reporter and Rev. James Martin, S.J., Editor-at-Large of America magazine and author of numerous books.
3. The 2013-2014 Respect Life Program features seven pamphlets in a series called Life Matters. Each presents convincing support for the teachings of the Catholic Church on major pro-life issues, with facts and reasoning drawn from science, history, law, psychology, sociology, and other secular sources.
4. The daily readings are among the most popular features on USCCB.org. Did you know there are audio versions of them as well?
5. God loves you.
