Tony Brandt, president of Casting Nets Ministries, calls in to talk about the story of Fr. Emil Kapaun, a Korean War veteran who died in a POW camp in 1950. There's long been a cause for canonization for the former U.S. Army chaplain who ministered to so many during that war in the field and in his prison camp. Miraculously, his long-missing remains were located and confirmed through DNA testing this past March. Tony and an envoy of representatives from the Diocese of Wichita, Kansas, Fr. Kapaun's home diocese, flew to Dallas to receive his remains, this past weekend, which had come from Korea by way of Hawaii. He shares Fr. Kapaun's story with Gus and talks about the progress of his cause for canonization.

Inspired by his conversation with Tony Brandt, Gus talks about saintly relics and invites listeners who possess a relic of a saint to call in and talk about it.

And, it's Monday, so that means Gus sets aside some time for Tell Me Something Good with listeners.
