Five Things To Remember On Feb. 5

1. Archbishop Joseph Kurtz writes, "I have celebrated the Holy Eucharist when it was pouring outside the Church, but yesterday in Santa Niño Church, located in Tacloban, the rain poured into the aisles throughout the Mass. Our team had just come through a downpour in the barangay called Anibong, which is by the sea, and we arrived at the Church where the faithful had gathered for Mass. All through the trip, I have been repeating that we are one church and that our presence is one of a brother and sister in the Lord in partnership with the local church. During the Holy Eucharist I saw it lived out."

4. Pope Francis talked about the importance of the Eucharist today, saying, "The Eucharist is at the heart of  'Christian initiation', together with Baptism and Confirmation, and it constitutes the source of the Church's life itself. From this Sacrament of love, in fact, flows every authentic journey of faith, of communion and of witness."

5. God loves you.
