The restaurant chain Red Robin has an open invitation for Pope Francis to come to the U.S. and try one of their Wild Pacific Crab Cake Burgers. The company said “If His Holiness accepts and visits any U.S. location between February 18th and April 2nd, they will offer the Wild Pacific Crab Cake Burger to guests for free on the remaining Fridays during Lent…while supplies last.” It inspires Gus to ask listeners what their eating habits are on Lenten Fridays.
Also, picking up from yesterday, Gus asks listeners to call in who have ever considered themselves atheists at some point in their lifetime or if they know somebody who does. He even had an interesting conversation with a man who currently considers himself an atheist.
Gus continues to talk about his experiences this week at a parish mission. Last night, a parishioner spoke to him about how the incarceration of a family member impacted him. Gus asks people who’ve ever been incarcerated, or have a loved one who was or is, to call in and tell him how that experience affected them.
And, we speak with Fr. Thomas Garabedian, chancellor of the Armenian Catholic Eparchy of Canada and the United States, about the newest doctor of the Church, St. Gregory of Narek, a 10th century Armenian priest, monk and mystic, who’s most inspired work is believed to be his Book of Lamenations.

St. Gregory of Narek, pray for us.
