Gus talks about his Rhine River Pilgrimage and something that he saw in the Church of the Holy Ghost in Heidelberg, Germany. There was a work of modern art on display that was supposed to be a representation of the Holy Ghost but looked more like a drag queen. It repulsed him and he invites listeners to call in and talk about religious artwork that has either inspired or repulsed them.
Also Dr. Matthew Bunson of EWTN News calls in to talk about some news items of Catholic interest, including the Nigerian church mass shooting, the DHS warning of potential violence against churches, crisis pregnancy centers and other pro-life institutions in the wake of the Supreme Court's abortion ruling later this month. They also discuss the threats made against certain Supreme Court justices and Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone barring Nancy Pelosi from receiving holy communion within the archdiocese. The Bishop's Conference of Colorado has followed suit by barring Catholic politicians who publicly support abortion from receiving communion.
And Gus talks about the disturbing lack of vocations to the priesthood around the world and talks about how 70 new priests were ordained in the Diocese of Guadalajara, Mexico this past weekend. He also talks about St. Ephrem the Syrian, the saint whose feast we celebrate today.
