Fr. Leo Patalinghug calls in to talk with Gus about churches still coming back from COVID, how Lent is going, and whether or not it is sinful to break your Lenten fast?
Later, Gus talks about some important Catholic news stories, including a church in Maryland whose tabernacle, with the Eucharist inside it, and other things were stolen. He also shares a similar story that occurred in Santiago, Chile. Also, in Finland, a Christian Member of Parliament, Paivi Rasanen, was acquitted of a hate crime for Tweeting a Bible verse about marriage being between one man and one woman.
He also talks about going to a penance service at his parish earlier this week and picked up and Examination of Conscience brochure based off the Ten Commandments. As he was reading it, Gus became troubled because the brochure, which was published by the Archdiocese of Washington D.C., listed the ninth and tenth commandments with politically correct, non-gender specific terms.
And, this past Monday, during our Tell Me Something Good segment, Gus heard from a woman who shared that her daughter had returned to the faith after several years of prayer. Gus invites listeners who've returned to the Catholic faith and who was an influential person who helped in their faith journey. Gus also hears from people who helped someone else find the Catholic faith.
