Gus starts off by explaining his equipment malfunction, which caused him to be off yesterday and Monday. He also gets very deep on his 60 Second Reflection, which talks about God’s Justice in Jesus’ parable, featured in today’s Gospel, about the laborers in the vineyard who were paid a day’s wage even though some had worked much less than others. A caller named Rich calls in and asks Gus where the justice is in that and starts a call in segment where others call in to talk about how this scenario has played out in their own lives. Later on, the topic morphs into folks who’ve had later-in-life conversions.
Later, Gus talks about the new Nike commercial that features the Iron Nun, Madonna Buder. He plays the spot and, although he has no problem with the commercial, he feels it is a little duplicitous in that she isn’t really a nun at all. Although she was raised Catholic and entered the Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd in 1953, she left in 1970 to form a non-traditional community of religious sisters independent of the authority of the Roman Catholic Church. Gus asks listeners if they find the commercial misleading or not.
