Catholic News Agency recently ran an article with the headline “France’s new president is a “zombie Catholic,” which means that, although raised Catholic, its teachings play a very minor in his life, although he still identifies himself as such. The term was coined by two French sociologists, Emmanuel Todd and Hervé Le Bras, and Gus asks listeners what they think a “zombie Catholic” is and if they ever were one.
Later, a former executive from a major corporation that was exposed in the early 2000s for major fraud, named Rick, calls into the program to talk about what that experience was like for him. Not only did Rick lose his job but was also sent to prison for five years for his role. Afterwards, Gus talks with listeners about a tragedy in their life that was later revealed to be a blessing.
