Five Things To Remember On Oct. 18
1. Pope Francis made his first English-language address today, which you can watch here.
2. Cardinal Timothy Dolan had an op-ed published in the Wall Street Journal on immigration reform today. He emphasizes how the Church has always helped immigrants in the U.S.
3.The U.S. bishops welcomed the decision of federal government leaders to agree to end the partial government shutdown 16 days after closing many offices and suspending important programs and services. The bishops also were heartened that so many who had been out of work could return to their jobs.
4. For the the Commemoration of All Soul's Day on November 2, the USCCB Facebook page will remember people who have died during the last year and urge people on Facebook to pray for them. People can send a photo of a departed loved one along with a remembrance of six words or less to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "All Souls' Day" by Oct. 20.
5. God loves you.
