Five Things To Remember On April 10
1. Today, Pope Francis spoke out against the "open wound" of human trafficking. See how the USCCB is fighting to end it.
2. Members of the U.S. bishops’ Administrative Committee ratified a recommendation to evenly distribute the proceeds of the special collection for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan between humanitarian relief and long-term church reconstruction and program needs. The decision was made during the USCCB Administrative Committee Meeting on March 11-12.
3. The Vatican Television Center has released information for broadcasters regarding worldwide telecasts of the events presided over by Pope Francis in Holy Week and Easter and the canonization of Blesseds John Paul II and John XXIII. All times are UTC/GMT (Coordinated Universal Time/Greenwich Mean Time).
4. Catholic News Service reports: "Responding to concerns about Catholic involvement with Girl Scouts, a U.S. bishops' committee released key points from its dialogue with Girl Scout leaders outlining major concerns of church leaders and the national organization's responses."
5. God loves you.
