Five Things To Remember On Feb. 27

1. In case you missed it, Bishop John Wester said of the FCC vote on Net Neutrality yesterday, “The Internet is a critical medium for religious speech. Radio, broadcast television and cable television are, in large part, closed to noncommercial religious messages,” said Bishop Wester, who chairs the Communications Committee of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). “From the inception of the Internet until the mid-2000s, Internet service providers were not permitted to discriminate or tamper with what was said over those Internet connections. Today, the FCC restores this protection for speakers, protection particularly important to noncommercial religious speakers.”

2. During Lent, Pope Francis offers tips for the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

3. Make sure you see and share the CRS Rice Bowl Lenten videos. We're sharing one a week on our social media.

4. As Black History Month comes to a close, make sure you see the people of African descent who are on the path to sainthood.

5. God loves you.
