Five Things To Remember On June 18
1. Catholics and Shia Muslims oppose actions that endanger the life, health, dignity and welfare of others, including the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, according to a joint declaration signed by U.S. bishops and Iranian religious leaders. The June 14 declaration resulted from a dialogue between a delegation from the USCCB and the Supreme Council of the Seminary Teachers of Qom, the preeminent center of religious scholarship in Iran, during a March 11-17 trip to Iran.
2. The Fortnight for Freedom starts in just three days and events are taking place across the country through early July. See what's happening near you during this Fortnight.
3. Did you miss the USCCB Spring General Assembly meeting last week. You can can catch up and watch it on our site.
4. Catholic News Service reports: "Beginning a series of audience talks about the church, its identity and mission, Pope Francis said it would be 'a bit like a son talking about his mother, his own family,' because the church is the mother of Christ's disciples and is called to be united as a family."
5. God loves you.
