Five Things To Remember On Aug. 27

1. Tomorrow, the United States will mark the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. While there is still much work to be done to achieve racial and class equality, we remain hopeful, the USCCB says.

2. Pope Francis' Twitter account has been relatively quiet in August, but he made up for it today with two poignant messages posted back-to-back. First, he tweeted, "Jesus is the gate opening up to salvation, a gate open to everyone." He then posted, "Let us allow Jesus into our lives, and leave behind our selfishness, indifference and closed attitudes to others." Follow him at @Pontifex.

3. As news continues to come out of Washington about Syria, it's worth noting that Pope Francis has called for peace in the country and prayed for the country this week.

4. The Catholic Church in the U.S. is a vocal advocate for comprehensive immigration reform. Kim Daniels will join the Alan Colmes radio show this evening to talk about what the Church is doing and why.

5. God loves you.
