Five Things To Remember On June 16

1. In just two days, the Vatican will release Pope Francis' highly anticipated encyclical letter "Laudato Si': On the Care of Our Common Home."  Find resources on the topic and read what the U.S. bishops and previous popes have written about our environment.

2. The Fortnight for Freedom is taking place from June 21 to July 4, 2015, with the theme of the “Freedom to Bear Witness.” The Fortnight is a two-week period of prayer, education, and action in support of religious liberty. For more information, visit www.Fortnight4Freedom.org.

3. The Peter's Pence Collection is June 27-28 and helps Pope Francis reach out to victims of war and natural disaster witness charity.

4. Pope Francis said today that priests showing a concern for poverty issues is not a sign of communism. It is at the heart of the Gospel.

5. God loves you.
