Gus talks about the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett, which began yesterday. Since her Catholic faith has been made an issue by certain senators in her past judicial hearings, Sen. Ben Sasse, of Nebraska, opens by giving a civics lesson on how the government has no business making a person's faith, or lack thereof, a litmus test for confirmation.
Also, Dr. Tom McGovern, of the Catholic Medical Association, joins Gus to discuss the World Health Organization now advising world leaders against lockdowns and the negative effects associated with them. He also talks with Gus about the possibility of a coronavirus vaccine by the end of the year.
Later, Fr. Leo Patalinghug calls in to talk about some of the pitfalls of social media, responding to negativity and growing old gracefully. He also talks about the Catholic Church's newest saint, Blessed Carlo Acutis.
And, in yesterday's Conversion Corner with Kira Mare McCullough, she talked about her experience church shopping. She did a lot of it before her conversion to Catholicism. Gus invites listeners who've church shopped to call in and talk about why.
