Today, Gus plays an encore broadcast of Canonization 101: The Making of a Saint, which focuses on the Catholic Church’s two newest saints, Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II. Their canonization date is this Sunday, April 27th.
Also, Gus welcomes Edward Clancy, director of evangelization and outreach for Aid to the Church in Need, to talk about Christian persecution throughout the world and the campaign for the Church to add a prayer for persecuted Christians at the end of mass. To read more about it, click here.
Dr. Jared Staudt, assistant professor of Theology and Catechesis at the Augustine Institute in Greenwood, Colorado, also calls in to Seize the Day to talk about the intermingling of faith and culture in our society and how they’re not necessarily mutually exclusive for practicing Catholics.
