Five Things To Remember On July 14

1. The “momentous agreement” reached between the United States and its partners with Iran over Iran’s nuclear program is a “significant achievement” that Congress should support, said the bishop who chairs the Committee on International Justice and Peace of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. In a July 14 letter to Congress, Bishop Oscar Cantú of Las Cruces, New Mexico, wrote: “It is no small achievement that the United States, the United Kingdom, the Russian Federation, China, Germany and France have reached this agreement with Iran.”

2. Pope Francis has returned home after his trip to South America. While there, though, he stressed the need for the Catholic Church to be welcoming.

3. Sunday is the start of Natural Family Planning Awareness Week. Learn more about NFP and get resources for the week.

4. Today is the Feast Day of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha. Learn about her life and how she became the first Native American saint.

5. God loves you.
