Five Things To Remember On Feb. 28
1. Catholics can take inspiration from Pope Francis and find advice and ideas for observing Lent on our downloadable calendar.
2. News.va reports, "Pope Francis celebrated Mass in the chapel of the Casa Santa Marta residence in the Vatican this morning. In remarks following the readings of the day, the Holy Father focused on the beauty of marriage and warned that the Church must accompany – not condemn – those who experience failure in married life. He explained that Christ is the Bridegroom of the Church, and therefore you cannot understand one without the Other."
3. More than 1,300 people are attending the Mid-Atlantic Congress in Baltimore, where many are getting a sneak peak at a new USCCB product, MyUSCCB. Follow along on social media at #MACongress
4. This weekend brings the Collection for the Church in Eastern Europe, which will fill essential needs for areas still recovering from Communism.
5. God loves you.
