Dr. Matthew Bunson calls in to talk about the latest Catholic news with Gus, including the resignation/firing of Cardinal Angelo Becciu and the accusation that he used Vatican funds to set up  Australian Cardinal George Pell and Pope Francis' new papal encyclical "Fratelli tutti."

Later, based off today's Gospel reading from Luke 10, which tells of the story of Martha and Mary, Gus talks about Eucharistic Adoration and asks listeners to call it who participate in that. Adoration is a very contemplative form of prayer and, in the Gospel reading, Jesus tells Martha, who's working, that Mary, who's kneeling at his feet, has chosen the better part.

    I was distressed to hear about the funeral in the UK in which a woman’s sons were prevented from comforting her due to social distance rules. While I think it is truly a tragedy and I hope I would have allowed the breach of rules, I think it is also a lesson in not judging others. We do not know all of the circumstances involved. Perhaps the funeral director had been warned by the government several times and given one last chance. Perhaps there was an official present who would have shut the funeral home down permanently had the director allowed the contact to continue. That man may have been in the untenable position of having to choose between allowing the contact or continuing to operate, thus allowing him to feed his family. Do I think that is likely? No. However, without knowing, it is equally detrimental to our humanity to judge others without full knowledge of their situation.
