Are you an organ donor? Are you against organ donation? There's a lot of passion on both sides of that coin and, since there's no clear Catholic teaching on the subject either way, Gus brings on moral theologian Dr. E. Christian Brugger to talk about it in order to help people make an informed decision. Afterwards, Gus talks with listeners about their thoughts on organ donation and hears from several who have loved ones who were the recipients of organ donation.
Gus also talks about a few news items, including an update on the Vatican's censure of official pilgrimages to the shrine to Our Lady in Medjugorje, Bosnia-Herzegovina. Well, Gus is happy to announce that Pope Francis has lifted that embargo and Catholic churches and dioceses can now schedule official pilgrimages. After that, Gus talks about Alyssa Milano's sex-strike in response to Georgia passing the pro-life Heartbeat Abortion Bill.
And, in honor of sacrament season and today's Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, Gus gives away some religious medals he bought there to listeners who have a family member or friend who is getting baptized, making their first holy communion or is getting confirmed this Spring.
