Today we remember the tragic events of September 11, 2001, when a deadly attack on the World Trade Center in New York took the lives of nearly 3,000 people. We, and so many others in the Church, continue to support and pray for the men, women, children, and families affected by the events of that day.
Here are the stories that we covered on today's episode of Perspectives Daily:
  1. In the years since 2001, Popes John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and Francis have joined the world in offering support and prayer for the victims of September 11.
  2. The Servants of Mary restore hope to orphaned and abandoned children at St. Mary’s Home in Yangon, Myanmar.
  3. The nine-member International Council of Cardinals began a three-day meeting with the Holy Father, expressing “full solidarity” with the pope.
  4. A preview of the Papal visit to Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia.
In addition to those, here are some of the latest Catholic news stories from around the world making headlines today:
