Gus talks about going to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina last week to witness his son Patrick and his bride renew their vows in front of family and friends. They were married about a year ago but, because of COVID regulations, couldn't have anyone in attendance. Gus said that Myrtle Beach has rescinded their mandatory mask mandate and were able to have a normal reception without masks and plenty of dancing and singing and food. He asks listeners if they would attend something like that or if it's too soon.
Later, Gus is joined by Dr. Peter Kreeft, professor of philosophy at Boston College, to talk about the subject of his newest book "How to Destroy Western Civilization and Other Ideas from the Cultural Abyss."
And, Bishop David Toups, of the Diocese of Beaumont, Texas, calls in to look back on this year of COVID. This time one year ago, Seize the Day was pre-taping shows, as our NY studios were shuttered because of COVID social distancing regulations. One of our regular guests was then-Monsignor David Toups who was the rector of St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary in Boynton Beach, Florida. On June 9, 2020 Pope Francis appointed him to be the bishop of the Diocese of Beaumont, Texas. He and Gus talk about how that's been going nearly a year in and what we've learned from the locdowns.
Also, it's Monday and that means Gus does a round of Tell Me Something Good with listeners.
