Today is the Feast of St. Simon Stock, a 13th century Carmelite prior who was given the brown scapular by the Blessed Virgin Mary in a vision. The brown scapular is a stitched piece of fabric that's worn around your neck, much like a necklace, underneath your clothing. It's believed that whoever dies wearing this will not see the fires of hell. Of course, conditions apply, like living a devout life. Gus invites listeners who wear the brown scapular or any other visible symbol of their faith to call in and talk about it.

Also, Fr. Leo Patalinghug calls into the program to talk about a myriad of subjects, including the Holy Spirit and how we perceive him. He's depicted as wind or a bird, which almost seems to downplay his significance. Fr. Leo talks about how God is a triune God and that the Holy Spirit is the third person and how he plays an essential role in mass. Fr. Leo also talks about his recent river cruise pilgrimage in Fatima and Gus brings up that today is Fr. Leo's birthday and teases him about his age.

And now that Roe v. Wade has been overturned, abortion legislation has gone back to the state level. Gus provides some news updates on states that have ramped up abortion access and those that have greatly limited it, including Ohio, North Carolina, Montana, Nebraska, Maryland, Michigan and Oregon.
