Five Things To Remember On Aug. 28

1. As the nation marks the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, read the USCCB's statement on the event and what still lies ahead.

2. Today is the Feast of St. Augustine, who was cited by Martin Luther King in his Letters from Birmingham Jail, saying: "I would agree with Saint Augustine that "An unjust law is no law at all." Now what is the difference between the two? How does one determine when a law is just or unjust? A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of Saint Thomas Aquinas, an unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law."

3. The Archdiocese of Washington shared a Facebook photo album from the March on Washington, which many Catholics participated in 50 years ago.

4. Catholics are using the latest digital technology and social media to reach out to young people and evangelize.

5. God loves you.
