2. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) will meet in Baltimore, November 10-13, for their annual Fall General Assembly. The bishops will hear the first presidential address of Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz of Louisville, Kentucky, president of USCCB, who was elected to a three-year term in November 2013. Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, apostolic nuncio to the United States, will also address the bishops.
3. Today, at the start of the synod, Pope Francis told bishops, “I ask you to speak with frankness and listen with humility. Do so with tranquility and peace, for the Synod always takes cum Petro et sub Petro – with Peter and under Peter – and the presence of the Pope is the guarantee for all and the safeguard of the faith.”
4. Respect Life Month began during the last week and tomorrow there will be a Mass here at the USCCB. Keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram account for pictures.
5. God loves you.
