August 9, 2017
Today, we continue our highlight coverage of the 97th CWL convention from PEI, but first let’s go to Rome where earlier today Pope Francis continued his catechesis on Christian hope during his weekly General Audience. The Pope reflected on divine forgiveness as the "driving force of hope". Here is the summary:
As I mentioned, the 97th CWL annual convention is in full swing. The theme of this years convention is: "Inspired by the Spirit, Women Respond to God's Call".  The CWL National President, Margaret Ann Jacobs, spoke to Emilie Callan earlier today about what motivated the theme for this year's convention.
And that's all that we have time for today. Join us again on tomorrow, when we bring you more news and stories from the Perspectives of a Catholic lens. Thanks for Joining us.
