Gus posted a very amusing video on his Facebook page of an Orthodox priest soaking his parishioners with holy water doused in flowers. In light of that, Gus asks listeners what their priest uses during the sprinkling at Easter mass and what that experience was like for them. By the way, the instrument typically used to disperse holy water on people is called an aspergillum (see the picture below).
We also hear from Joan Rosenhauer, executive vice president of Catholic Relief Services, who wraps up the 40th anniversary of CRS Rice Bowl and this year’s impact. To learn more about CRS and how you can help, click here.
And Gus talks about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the Boston bomber, whose trial is in the second day of deliberation and he gets listeners’ opinions on whether or not he should get the death penalty.
