Today is the Feast of the Annunciation and Gus reflects on some of his past pilgrimages in which the Archangel Gabriel's annunciation to the Blessed Virgin Mary played a role. First, he talks about seeing an enormous painting of that scene by Italian painter Domenico Bruschi in 1882 that he was able to see in Malta four years ago. He also talks about visiting the Basilica of the Annunciation in Nazareth, the exact location where Mary said "yes" to God. Afterwards, Gus invites listeners to call in and share what piece of religious art moves them.
Also, Bishop Thomas Paprocki, of the Diocese of Springfield, Illinois, calls in to talk about the modified Sunday obligation he's establishing in his diocese beginning April 11th. He explains his decision to push forward with this and goes over the details with Gus. Later, Gus talks with him about his new book "Running for a Higher Purpose: 8 Steps to Spiritual and Physical Fitness." Like Gus, Bishop Paprocki is a runner and he explains why he got into fitness and how it's elevated him not only physically but also spiritually.
