Five Things To Remember On Sept. 23

1. Cardinal O'Malley of the Archdiocese of Boston will be one of eight Cardinals selected to help Pope Francis reform the curia in the Vatican next month. Catholic News Service asked Cardinal O'Malley his expectations. He reportedly smiled and said: "I don't know. Obviously, there's been many surprises in the last few months, and I think there'll be more of the same."

2. Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of Bishop Sam Jacobs, 75, from the pastoral governance of the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux, Louisiana, and named Auxiliary Bishop Shelton Fabre of New Orleans, 49, to succeed him.

3. Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage, and Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore, chairman of the Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty, gave their strong support for the Marriage and Religious Freedom Act (H.R. 3133) introduced Thursday in the U.S. House of Representatives by Rep. Raúl Labrador.

4. Catholics are heeding the call to be evangelizers online. Have you seen this video?

5. God loves you.
