Five Things To Know on March 21

1. Father John Crossin head of the bishops Secretariat for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs offers an important insight on criminal justice issues in his blog post on ecumenism on the margins
2. Pope Francis in his morning homily reminds people that prayer and humility are needed in a world that can hold out an unrealistic view of self-sufficiency.
3. The USCCB Lenten calendar today points out that destitution is not the same as poverty because destitution is poverty without faith, without support, without hope. The message comes from Pope Francis' message for Lent 12014.

4. Dioceses around the country are now preparing thousands of men and women to enter the Catholic Church on Holy Saturday through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.

5. God loves you.
