In honor of St. Ignatius of Loyola's feast day, Gus plays an archived interview with former Jesuit Conference President Fr. Thomas Smolich who talks about their founder's life and legacy and about the Society of Jesus in general. He also talks about his timeless spiritual exercises, which are still practiced today church-wide. Afterwards, Gus talks with listeners with Jesuit ties; be it through education or family.

Also, inspired by a call from a listener last week, and by his own experience, Gus talks about a time in his life when God put it on his heart to reach out to a particular person and the result was fantastic; almost like a divine appointment. He calls them "God Nudges." Gus invites listeners to call in and share a moment when God nudged them.

    Re: God Nudges. I didn’t call in, but I have one thing that was a definite God Nudge to me. It concerned a big decision I was facing in my life; that is retirement. Being a new Catholic/redeemed Christian, I wasn’t sure if it was OK for me to retire, even though I was financially, physically, and mentally ready for this. I thought that maybe I should keep working since I am a nurse and made decent money. First, when my husband had heart trouble, I thought I should keep working in case he could not. Then, as I decided to continue, I took a second very bad fall at work. The first fall included a head injury, of which I am still suffering from mentally. It didn’t take long after this second painful and traumatic injury, for me to find peace with retiring. I thought I was being presumptive, thinking this was a sign, but another Christian told me the same thing. Sometimes God has to knock us up aside the head to get us to listen she said. I listened and retired and am at peace with my decision.
