Five Things To Remember On Feb. 21
1. Catholic News Service reports: "A day after at least 75 people were reported killed in clashes between police and protesters in Ukraine's capital, Pope Francis asked the College of Cardinals to send a message of support to the two Ukrainian cardinals who are suffering because their people are." You can also see this prayer for the Ukraine as well.
2. The United States should sign and ratify the Convention on the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of Anti-Personnel Mines and Their Destruction, also known as the Ottawa Convention or the Mine Ban Treaty, said the chair of the USCCB's Committee on International Justice and Peace in a letter to National Security Advisor Susan E. Rice.
3. With Lent just around the corner, it's a good time to learn how Catholic Relief Services' Rice Bowl program can help you live Lent. There's even a new mobile app to help.
4. Like millions displaced by Typhoon Haiyan, Rosie Tolibas has survived -- only to have nowhere to go. Read more in Don Clemmer's great blog today.
5. God loves you.
