So often, we hear stories about Catholic school discipline involving corporal punishment, especially from nuns. It's something that's pretty much gone by the wayside but Gus invites listeners to call in and share any discipline stories they remember from their youth.
And later, Gus talks about today's readings from mass, which deal with lukewarm-ness and having an encounter with Jesus. In the First Reading, from the Book of Revelation, St. John writes that the Angel of the Church of Laodicea writes, "So, because of you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth." In today's Gospel reading from St. Luke, the Jewish tax collector Zacchaeus has an encounter with Jesus that leads to a profound conversion. Gus invites listeners who've gone through a period of lukewarm-ness followed by a life-changing encounter with Jesus.
