Five Things To Remember On Oct. 25
1. In recent weeks, Pope Francis has been stating the positives of marriage. For instance, today, Catholic News Service is reporting he said: "There are problems in marriage: different points of view, jealousies, arguments, but tell young couples to never let the day end without making peace. The sacrament of matrimony is renewed in this act of peace," during a meeting with members of the Pontifical Council for the Family.
2. The Pope has also criticized the "throw-away" culture. Today, he tweeted, "The 'throw-away' culture produces many bitter fruits, from wasting food to isolating many elderly people."
3. Although there is just a week left in October, the month of the rosary, it's never too late to learn how to pray the rosar.
4. A West Point graduate and current seminarian is running in the upcoming Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C., to raise awareness and money for U.S. military chaplaincies. Watch this CNS video on his journey.
5. God loves you.
