Inspired by today's Gospel from Luke, which tells the story of sisters Mary and Martha, Gus talks about the importance of taking time for the contemplative part of our spiritual life. For many, the best way to go about that is to undertake a spiritual retreat. The Catholic Church offers many. Gus asks listeners who've made a retreat to call in and share their experiences.
And, October is the month of the Rosary so Gus asks listeners to call in and share stories about their special Rosaries. Those who get on the air receive a Holy Land Rosary that they have to give to someone else.
Gus welcomes Patrice Abona to the show. She's the executive director of the Eastern Rite Catholic Re-Evangelization Center. They offer many programs to help one grow in one's faith, including retreats. Gus will be speaking at their annual Gather & Give fundraising dinner this Thursday evening.
