It’s Gus and the pilgrims’ last day in Budapest and he talks about their experiences there, including the roles St. Matthias and St. Stephen of Hungary play in the city’s culture. St. Matthias was a king of Hungary in the 15th century who led the country through a couple of successful wars and is responsible for much of the city and country’s unique architecture. St. Stephen was also a king who reigned in the 11th century who actually founded the country and also led it through several wars and raids and helped spread the Catholic faith through that portion of Europe. Gus also talks about the role the Church plays in all aspects of that country, including government.
Also, Fr. John Williamson returns. A couple days ago, he told Gus his vocation story and, today, he talks with Gus about how he overcame cancer not once, but twice in his life. He shares what that experience was like and how it shaped him spiritually. Later, Gus talks with several more pilgrims who share their conversion/vocation stories.
