Today, Gus is joined by Robert Moynihan, author of the new book "Finding Vigano: In Search of the Man Whose Testimony Shook the Church and the World." Over the last several years, Italian Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano has been the most polarizing figure in the Catholic Church. His criticisms of the Vatican's handling of the clergy sex abuse scandal and his call for Pope Francis to resign have made him either a saint or a devil to people on the inside and outside of the Church. Robert's book explores the history of the man and doesn't necessarily advocate for him or denounce him. He lets the readers decide. Gus talks to him about his reasons for writing this book and about the man himself. He also discusses the lengths he went to in order to interview Archbishop Vigano who has been in hiding in recent years.
Also, Gus gives an update on his mother-in-law Tina's health status. Yesterday, he told listeners that she's in her 90s and has Alzheimer's and has recently been placed into an assisted living facility and, more recently, had to be moved into a hospital for health reasons. Because of COVID restrictions, neither Gus' wife Michelle nor any of her sisters are able to see her. Gus invites listeners to call in and share if they have a similar story or if there's someone close who won't be around for Christmas this year.
And, Bob Dunning calls in to give his predictions on all the college football conferences championship games as well as his Heisman pick.
