Gus shares his Ash Wednesday experience and invites listeners to call in and share how theirs went and what their disposition of ashes was like.

Also, Fr. Scott Wooten sits down with Gus in the Conversion Corner. Fr. Scott is a married priest, an Anglican convert, and he shares his journey, which was always faith-filled. He grew up Anglican, went to Catholic school for a few years, and eventually felt the call to Anglican ministry during an unfulfilling career as an engineer. In the back of his mind, he always felt a calling to Catholicism, however, and it caught fire when he led his students on a trip to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe. He tells Gus and the listeners the rest of his story.

And, Gus talks about the passing of talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh and the influence he had on him, especially as a talk show host himself. He also talks about the sad state of affairs on social media where some people choose to cheer his death or just say vile, hate-filled things about a man who just died.

    Gus, enjoyed immensely your discussion on Ash Wednesday as I had just come from mass and helped distribute ashes. I agree with your assessment completely. As for the hatred coming from the radical, Godless and evil inspired left on the passing of Rush Limbaugh, I sadly expected nothing less. It is a sad, sad state of affairs we find ourselves in as a nation.

    I’m glad you reiterated that the Ash Wednesday directive from The Vatican was not an edict. I was listening to an evening program on The Catholic Channel yesterday where the hosts had a different take on how we should do the ashes, which made me question why so many variances within the Diocese. Thank you.

    I enjoy your show and listen every day. You are doing a fine job and know that it makes a difference to so many people. The only problem is that I wish you were on longer!
    I’ve bought your books and shared them with friends. You make me feel more in touch with my faith and I truly, truly appreciate you and the work you do.
