Gus talks about today's Gospel from Matthew where Joseph recognized Mary was with child even though they hadn't consummated their marriage yet. An angel of the Lord spoke to Joseph in dream and told them the child in her womb was the long-awaited Messiah. When Joseph awoke, he took Mary into his home. Gus talks about how God communicates with us in a variety of ways; sometimes in dreams. He recounts a dream he had shortly after his father's death and, afterwards, talks with listeners about dreams they believed were given to them by God.
Also, Gus talks about a story out of Detroit, Michigan where a priest, Fr. Don Lacuesta, has been barred from funerals after giving a homily at the funeral mass of a teen, Maison Hullibarger, who committed suicide. His parents, Jeff and Linda, were displeased with the homily, which mentioned suicide several times, and after complaining to the Archdiocese of Detroit, went to the news to publicize this unfortunate event. Gus plays the audio from the news report and follows it up by reading Fr. Lacuesta's actual homily. To read the full story, click here.
Gus is also joined by Nathaniel Binversie, the director of missions for Exodus 90, which is a 90-day spiritual exercise for men in order to build their faith. It's geared especially to those who are discerning a vocation, getting married or attempting to overcome an addiction. Nathaniel gets into the nuts and bolts of what they do and tells people how they can be part of it.
