Gus kicks off Phase II of Project Christmas. Today, he welcomes back Operation Once-in-a-Lifetime and its founder and CEO, Sgt. Patrick Sowers. Operation Once-in-a-Lifetime's mission is to financially assist needy veterans and their families who've suffered a hardship. In a little over one hour, we raised $22,710. All of us at Seize the Day are overwhelmed by your response and are eternally grateful. If you were unable to call in and make a pledge, you can donate directly to Operation Once-in-a-Lifetime by clicking here
Later, today is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which is a Holy Day of Obligation in the Catholic Church. Gus clears up some misconceptions about what the feast celebrates and goes over the Church's teaching on the Immaculate Conception from the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
