Five Things To Remember On Oct. 17
1. Bishop Ricken, of Green Bay, Wisconsin, and chairman of the Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis says, "The vast and immediate reach of digital technology means today’s evangelizers have more tools than ever at their disposal. This is a gift, especially because proclaiming Christ to the world is not optional for the Church."
2. On Sunday, Pope Francis will celebrate the closing Mass of the Synod on the Family and the beatification of Pope Paul VI. Read how Pope Paul influenced an American bishop and about his emphasis on peace and justice issues. Here is a round-up of all our blogs this week on Paul VI.
3. Pope emeritus Benedict XVI will attend the beatification.
4. Sunday is World Mission Sunday, a day set aside for Catholics worldwide to recommit themselves to the Church's missionary activity through prayer and sacrifice.
5. God loves you.
