Today is the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. He's one of the most popular saints of the Catholic Church. Author Jon Sweeney calls in to talk about the life and legacy of St. Francis of Assisi. Jon is an expert on the saint and has written extensively on him. His books include "When Saint Francis Saved the Church," "The Enthusiast" and "The St. Francis Prayer Book."

Also, inspired by St. Francis' feast day, Gus asks listeners to call in and share their three favorite saints and why.

Authors and screenwriters Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney call in to talk about their new film "Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer" and how undertaking the book and film changed them and how people, particularly the media, just don't care about abortion.
