Five Things To Remember On April 5
1. Catholics will celebrate the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord, which marks when the Blessed Virgin Mary was told by the Angel Gabriel that she would be the mother of Jesus. It is typically on March 25, but was moved to April 8 because it would have been during Holy Week.
2. The role of women in church was certainly a hot topic during the papal transition. In this video, you'll see that Pope Francis has already made it a priority.
3. Earlier this week, it was announced that Dreamworks was going to produce a movie on the Boston Globe's staff's work in uncovering the pedophilia scandal. Sister Mary Ann Walsh, media relations director for the USCCB, writes in a blog that she hopes the movie uncovers the heroes on all sides of that sad time in the country.
4. Pope Francis said earlier Friday that he is stressing to doctrine officials in the Catholic Church to "act decisively" against sex abuse.
5. God loves you.
