Five Things To Remember On Aug. 18

1. In the annual USCCB Labor Day Statement, Archbishop Thomas Wenski wrote, “For those fortunate enough to have jobs, many pay poorly. Greater numbers of debt-strapped college graduates move back in with their parents, while high school graduates and others may have less debt but very few decent job opportunities. Pope Francis has reserved some of his strongest language for speaking about young adult unemployment, calling it ‘evil,’ an ‘atrocity,’ and emblematic of the ‘throwaway culture.'"

2. Hundreds of thousands of people said this prayer for peace in Iraq during the last week on Facebook and Twitter.

3. Catholic News Service points out, "Past popes have set a variety of records, but Pope Francis seems sure to be setting the record for papal selfies."

4. It's Back to School time. See how Catholic schools are preparing children for the future.
5. God loves you.
