Gus is joined in studio by Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke who's in town to visit with fundraisers for an Our Lady of Guadalupe shrine in LaCrosse, Wisconsin with which he's involved. He talks about that and shares the story of growing up on a farm in Wisconsin and losing his father at a young age. He also shares his vocation story and being consecrated Archbishop of St. Louis, Missouri by Pope St. John Paul II and later cardinal by Pope Emertius Benedict XVI. Later, he and Gus discuss the state of the Catholic Church today, particularly the German Synodal Way, and the effects of Pope Francis' apostolic letter Traditiones custodes.

Also, Gus talks about today's First Reading, which has the famous line from St. Paul, "Wives should be subordinate to their husbands as to the Lord." Gus talks about how that, in today's culture, that's a controversial line. Even within the Church, this line is bracketed when it appears in the Sunday readings; meaning the priest or deacon has the option not to read it. Gus says that this is a mistake but, what St. Paul is saying is that marriage needs to mirror the relationship to Jesus Christ and his Church.

    Hi Guss

    I was fortunate enough to meet you this last Saturday at Holy Family.

    Here is another view point with respect to the Latin mass.

    At times I am forced to listen to the mass that contains various amounts of Latin in it. (On the radio for example)

    For me it is HUGELY disruptive. It significantly takes away from my personal experience of the mass. I am sure it is the same for many.

    I totally agree with Pope Francis especially for masses presented on the radio or TV etc.

    My opinion pass on if desired.

    John Steele.
