Five Things To Remember On May 27
1. This weekend's trip by Pope Francis to the Holy Land was trending on social media. In case you missed the news, the pope met with the Ecumenical Patriarch, invited the leaders of Palestine and Israel to the Vatican and prayed at the Western Wall.
2. Pope Francis announced he will meet with sexual abuse survivors during a question and answer session with reporters on the way back to the Vatican.
3. In other Holy Land news, last week members of the USCCB encouraged U.S. leaders to work toward a two-state solution with Israel and Palestine.
4. The Fortnight for Freedom: Freedom to Serve will take place from June 21 to July 4, a time when our liturgical calendar celebrates a series of martyrs who remained faithful in the face of persecution by political power. The theme of this year's Fortnight will focus on the freedom to serve the poor and vulnerable in accord with human dignity and the Church's teaching.
5. God loves you.
