Gus dedicates his show to social media today and asks listeners how they use it and what negative and positive effects they may have had as a result. Some negative effects were getting into arguments and losing close friends and some of the positives are reconnecting with long lost friends and family and using it as a tool of evangelization.
Also, Damon Owens calls in to talk about the Theology of the Body Congress 2016, which is currently underway in Ontario, California. Damon talks about Pope St. John Paul II’s influence on the Congress plus lets us know this year’s theme and who will be speaking.
Later, Gus talks about the teaching of the Church on contraception and reads portions of Pope Paul VI’s 1968 papal encyclical “Humanae Vitae,” which condemns artificial contraception.
