Gus goes over a new Pew Research Survey, which shows that 20% of U.S. adults identify as Catholics. The numbers, however, don’t really jive with mass attendance numbers. Gus asks listeners if there should be a minimum requirement for you to identify as Catholic.

Also, John Zmirak, senior editor of the Stream, calls in to talk a recent piece he wrote about persecuted Christians in the Middle East. He gives a little history of how all of this happened, including how the Iraqi government, in coordination with the U.S. State Department, enacted gun control laws that only Christians followed. It made them open pray to hostile extremist Muslims. He shares how the same thing happened in Nazi Germany in the 1930s and in Rwandan Genocide in the 1990s.

And it's Monday so Gus does a couple rounds of Tell Me Something Good with listeners.

    Today (Tues., 4/23/24) I heard it said on your radio show that we go to the Mass for the Eucharist. I always thought the same. I recently heard, “We go to the Mass for the Sacrifice.” I see truth in that, also, especially, for example, for people who not allowed to receive the Holy Eucharist in Communion, but still come to Mass. Praise God!
