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.

    I Listen to your show, Gus, and enjoy it very much! Listening to the college conference football predictions today…I had to comment. I was a little disappointed in your choice for the BIG 12….Oklahoma over Iowa State…We hope ISU wins!! But I have some side notes about Iowa State that I thought you might enjoy….ISU Athletic Director, Head Football Coach, Head Basketball Coach, Head Gymnastics Coach, and Head Women’s Golf Coach are all Catholic!!! And a few years ago, the president of ISU was Catholic. My husband was the head Track and Cross Country Coach for 25 years…but back then the only Catholic! Anyway, just thought I’d share a little trivia about ISU…May Our Lord bless you and your family!

    Was very interesting listening to this author and friend of Archbishop Vigano. I can’t wait until his next book comes out!
