With the fear of the coronavirus outbreak running rampant, Gus polls his listeners and asks them to call in a rate, on a scale of one to 10, their concern over the it; one being no concern at all, 10 being on high alert. Additionally, he asks listeners what their dioceses are doing in response to the coronavirus as many have suspended communion from the chalice, on the tongue and handshaking at the Sign of Peace.
He's also joined by the Catholic Traveler, Mountain Butorac, who talks about the suspension of public masses in the Diocese of Rome over a fear of the coronavirus outbreak. Mountain is based in Rome and specializes in religious pilgrimages in the city. He talks about how surreal the whole situation seems, especially in that lines to St. Peter's Basilica and St. Peter's Square are mostly devoid of tourists.
Gus is also joined by Gordon Robertson, executive producer of the new docudrama "I Am Patrick," which tells the story of St. Patrick. It's a Fathom Events film that will have a two-day run in cinemas across the country beginning March 17th.
