Five Things To Remember On Oct. 9
1. Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone of San Francisco, chairman of the U.S. bishops’ Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage, said that the decision on October 7 by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit striking down marriage laws in Nevada and Idaho was “astonishingly dismissive” of the rights of children and detrimental to the democratic process.
2. World Mission Sunday is set aside for Catholics worldwide to recommit themselves to the Church's missionary activity through prayer and sacrifice. In 2014, World Mission Sunday is celebrated on October 19.
3. Archbishop Blase J. Cupich, soon to be installed as Archbishop of Chicago, said he's trying to stay in touch with every day people as a way to remain connected to his mission.
4. Pope Francis said you pray with a friend - Jesus - who is a companion during life's journey.
