Gus talks about the double standards that are going on in the country in the era of coronavirus. Although people are discouraged from gathering without social distancing guidelines, i.e., facemasks, standing six feet apart, wearing gloves, not touching surfaces, etc. But, with the protests going on everywhere, you don't seem to hear that or see it. Also, some dioceses in the country have to threaten their local governments with lawsuits in order to get them to allow them to open back up. Gus says that several governors and local officials understand legal action but they don't seem to understand their constituents' need to worship.
Also, Gus has a couple of conversation topics for today. First, he talks about the Daughters of St. Paul bookstore in Chicago, which was looted during the riots over the weekend. The sisters, who live over the bookstore, watched this all unfold and found comfort in praying for the looters and rioters. With all the craziness our nation and world is currently going through, Gus asks listeners to call in and share how they find peace in the midst of all this?
Next, he talks about today's First Reading where St. Paul tells Timothy that if we deny Jesus, he will deny us. Gus invites listeners to call in and talk about a time in their lives when they denied Jesus.
