Gus goes over some Catholic news items of interest, including a statement recently published by Fr. Brian Kolodiejchuk, who was a close friend and confidant of Mother Teresa and the postulator of her cause for canonization. A movie about the saint called "Mother Teresa & Me" is set to be released this week and he takes issue with her portrayal and some of the artist license the writers took. Gus also talks about a news article he received in his email inbox this morning from CBS News, entitled "Catholic Church's future on the table as Pope Francis kicks off 2023 Synod with an LGBTQ bombshell." Gus reads the article, which is about the Synod and the bishops and cardinals discussing the topic of the blessing of same-sex unions. So...there really was no bombshell. Gus takes calls on the latter subject
Later, Fr. Jacob-Bertrand Janczyk calls in to talk about the new Catholic Classics Ascension Press podcast he's co-hosting with Fr. Gregory Pine on the Confessions of St. Augustine. He and Gus discuss the saint's incredible story, which he shared with the world over 1,600 years ago what continues to make it such compelling reading.
And Bob Dunning calls in to talk with Gus about this weekend's biggest games, including Texas v. Oklahoma, Alabama v. Texas A&M and LSU v. Mzzou.
