Five Things To Remember On Nov. 12
1. Archbishop Joseph Kurtz, of Louisville, was elected president of the USCCB today. Archbishop Kurtz has been the conference's vice president for three years and you can hear how the Conference is called to follow Pope Francis' lead in warming hearts and minds. In addition, Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, of Houston, was elected as vice president.
2. Several different USCCB committee chairman were elected today, and you can see the full list.
3.The bishops voted to develop a statement on pornography during the next two years. “As pastors, we’re aware that many people are consuming or are exploited by pornography, and many also are struggling with pornography addiction,” Bishop Richard J. Malone said in his report. “The number of men, women, and children who have been harmed by pornography use is not negligible, and we have an opportunity to offer healing and hope to those who have been wounded.”
4. Miss the social media surrounding the General Meeting in Baltimore? Use #USCCB13 to see how busy the Catholic community has been in talking about it during the last two days.
5. God loves you.
