Tim Glenkowski, executive director of the National Eucharistic Congress, calls in to talk about the USCCB's National Eucharistic Revival, a multi-year initiative, which has entered into its Year of the Parish Revival. One of the most discouraging things about contemporary Catholicism is that there are so many Catholics, even churchgoing members, who don't believe in the true presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, body, blood, soul and divinity. Tim talks about how their aim is to change that and explains how.
Also, the main focus of Gus' 60 Second Reflection today is encouragement, as it's mentioned 10 times by St. Paul in today's First Reading. It's one of the chapters of Gus' book, "Magnetic Christianity: Using Your God-Given Gifts to Build the Kingdom." Gus plays the audio version of his chapter on "Encouragement."
And it's Monday so Gus does a couple rounds of Tell Me Something Good with listeners.

    Tell me something good…Hello Gus. I’ve been listening to your show for the last 4 months and love it. So this is something good but it feels weird. My wife and I are separated and are eventually going to go through divorce within the next year. We just haven’t been happy with each other at all over the last few years especially this past year. We have no kids so that’s good but joint custody of our 2 fur kids. We are actually really good with this decision we are making. Over the last 4 months I’ve been going to mass on Sunday mornings where in the past up until this point I was unable to attend mass at all due to my work schedule. Anyway back to mass for the last 4 months and especially this past month. There are people you see on a regular basis at the church. For me there was a woman that sat in front of me, so I finally told her I wanted to say “Hello” to her. She acknowledged. The weeks went by and last week I asked how her week was and how she’s been doing. After a bit of small talk, she asked what my status is and I told her I was going through divorce. Her eyes opened wide and she is going through the same thing. We sat together that mass and yesterday morning, she came to sit right next to me. We even prayed together in front of different statues or areas of the church. We both smiled at each other that hasn’t happened in years for either one of us.
