Five Things To Remember On Nov. 21
1. “The decision by the Illinois legislature and the governor to redefine marriage in law does not alter the natural reality that marriage is and can only be the union of one man and one woman,” said Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, chairman of the U.S. bishops’ Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage, responding to the decision by the Illinois legislature and the governor to redefine marriage. “Furthermore, marriage redefinition is a serious injustice. The law exists to safeguard the common good and protect authentic rights, especially the right of children to have a married mother and father.”
2. Catholics will be asked “How do you prepare for Christmas?” and encouraged to share photos in exchange for a new book series on Pope Francis from the USCCB. The question and book giveaway will be posted at www.facebook.com/usccb beginning December 1, the first Sunday of Advent.
3. Lino Rulli, a popular Catholic radio show host, discusses Pope Francis' success in the mainstream media.
4. The National Catholic Youth Conference in Indianapolis will begin today in Indianapolis. More than 20,000 young people will be there, along with many bishops. Follow social media talk, which will be very busy, at #NCYC.
5. God loves you.
