Gus plays audio from the opening prayer of the 117th Congress from Missouri Congressman Emanuel Cleaver. It was a pretty good prayer up until the end where he says "Amen and a-woman." Gus explains the word's Hebrew origin, what it means and how it's used by the Catholic Church. He also talks about Congress' effort to erase the words "him," "her," "mother," "father," etc. and how dangerous this is. He urges Church and civic leaders to squash this now before it's too late.
Later, Gus welcomes Dr. Grazie Pozo Christie back to the program to talk about the coronavirus vaccine, the effects of the lockdowns and asks her if the pandemic was used as a political weapon by power-hungry politicians.
Also, Gus reads a piece written recently by Msgr. Charles Pope entitled "5 Hard Truths We've Come to See with 2020 Vision," which looks back on the tumultuous year and talks about what we've lost, or may lose, as a society as a result of the national response. Gus gets listener response.
