Gus talks about a few things that are close to his heart at Christmas time. One of them is people going through their first Christmas following the death of a loved one. Gus takes callers from listeners who are enduring just that. Afterwards, Gus talks with listeners who've experience Christmas miracles.
Later, Gus talks about the controversy surrounding Fr. Don LaCuesta, a Detroit-area priest, and the Hullibarger family whose 18-year-old son Maison took his own life on December 4th. At the funeral mass, Fr. LaCuesta's homily was not what he and the family agreed upon. The family feels he used it as an excuse to condemn suicide and decided to take this to the media.
