With Ash Wednesday only two days away, Gus talks about one important component of Lenten penances...spiritual reading. Gus invites listeners to call in with their book recommendations. Below is the full list of listener recommendations.

Also, Gus talks with Maureen Ferguson, senior fellow at the Catholic Association, about the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which will be voted on tomorrow in the Senate. She also talks about a recent study conducted by a pro-choice doctor that verifies the child in the womb's central nervous system is developed enough at 13 weeks that makes it capable of feeling pain.

And it's Monday so that means Gus engages in a little Tell Me Something Good with listeners.

- Bishop Barron's Lenten Devotional

- The World's First Love by Fulton J. Sheen

- A Grateful American by Gary Sinise

    Hi Gus,
    you might enjoy checking a book by future Blessed Fulton Sheen: MORNINGS WITH FULTON SHEEN. ( 120 ) Holy Hour Readings compiled by Beverly Coney HEIRICH.
    They are concise meditations with a PROVERBS hammer at the end to drive the point home.
    Hope you and everyone have a great Lent, Holy Week, Easter, and Feast of Mercy.

    How can I share this in an email? It’s very important to me. There are two people I’d like to hear today’s show—especially the Tell Me Something Good segment.

    I’m a huge Seize the Day fan and I met you in Spring Branch two days ago (sat in the front row next to Kevin and his wife).

    Thank you for coming to Texas, Gus. It was an honor to meet you in person and experience your passion and humility up front. Please never change!!

    Debbie Christ
