Here are the stories we bring you on today's episode of Perspectives Daily:

1. A quick look at the top Catholic headlines of the day.
2. Over the weekend, Pope Francis visited a Roman parish and answered questions from parishioners about dealing with doubt and anger. Catholic News Service brings us a portion of his response.
3. Caritas Canada, better known as the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace (D&P) has issued a statement voicing their disappointment at the Canadian government's failure "to appoint an independent Ombudsperson for Responsible Enterprise with real powers to investigate abuses and redress the harm caused by Canadian companies operating abroad." Here's a clip Salt + Light first produced during D&P's 2013 #VoiceForJustice campaign, providing some background on the issue.

That's it for today. Be sure to check in with us again tomorrow for more of the latest Catholic news and stories that you need to know.
