Gus opens the phones to listeners to see what their 2019 Lenten strategy is. What are they giving up? Taking on? Focusing on? And, if they're giving something up, what are they doing to fill in that mental void?

Later, Gary Jansen, director of Image Catholic Books and executive editor at Penguin Random House, calls in to talk about Image's newest publication, "Your Life is Worth Living: 50 Lessons to Deepen Your Faith" by the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.

Afterwards, Gus talks about the announcement that the New York State Supreme Court ruled in favor of Joan Sheen Cunningham, Archbishop Sheen's niece, and her bid to move his remains from New York to his hometown of Peoria, Illinois. Archdiocese of NY's Spokesperson Joseph Zwilling said they disagree with the court's ruling and are "considering their next steps." Gus gives his opinion on the matter and calls the whole situation embarrassing.

    I have not received ashes since the 1970’s, but it was never part of Mass. It was usually from 2 or 3-6 pm and there were usually two priests and you got in line for them. The only Mass was at 6:00 AM and maybe one during the day on ash wendnesday. Most people were working or in school at those times.

    Gus, I just wanted to thank you all for the prayers we received on 15 Feb. You and your listeners prayed for my wife Mary and I due to an issue she had at work.
    She did end up leaving her job after 18 years. She started her new job today and is on cloud 9. She sounds 20 years younger. She took a 50% pay cut, but not all money is good money. I beg you pray for her subordinates and her boss, as they are in desperate need of conversion. (Most are atheists) Thanks again, and God Bless you all.
