Five Things To Remember On May 18
1. Pope Francis asked Palestinian nuns to pray for Christians who are persecuted for their faith.
2. In case you missed it, the U.S. Bishops’ International Justice and Peace Committee has urged Secretary of State, John Kerry, to step up efforts to advance nuclear disarmament and ensure the success of a multilateral conference being held in New York. The comments were made in a May 12 letter issued as the Ninth Review Conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) meeting continues at the United Nations.
3. CatholicClimate's St. Francis Pledge: Reflect, act, and advocate solving climate change.
4. The Fortnight for Freedom will take place from June 21 to July 4, 2015, a time when our liturgical calendar recognizes great martyrs who remained faithful in the face of persecution by political power. The theme of this year's Fortnight will focus on the "freedom to bear witness" to the truth of the Gospel.
5. God loves you.
