Gus reads verbatim the Associated Press' interview with Pope Francis where the topic of homosexuality took up a big part of it. The pope said that homosexuality is a sin but shouldn't be a crime and that bishops around the world need to be more welcoming to the LGBTQ+ community. Gus opens the phones up and gets listener's thoughts.
Later, Catholic author/host Debbie Cowden calls in to talk about a new book she's co-authored with her husband Dave called "The Prayer Book for Tired Parents: Practical Ways to Grow in Love of God and Get Your Family to Heaven." Debbie and her husband are parents to three kids under the age of six and has plenty of experience attempting to keep a thriving spiritual life in spite of numerous daily distractions. She shares some of those with Gus and the listeners.
Inspired by their conversation, Gus invites listeners to call in and share any funny or touching stories they have about bringing their children or grandchildren to mass.
