Gus is joined by Fr. Matthew Hood. Last week, Fr. Hood made national headlines when it was revealed that, although he was ordained as a priest three years ago, he wasn't actually a priest. That's because he discovered he wasn't validly baptized. He tells Gus that story as well as his vocation story.

Also, Peter Breen, vice-president and senior counsel of the Thomas More Society, joins Gus to talk about his client David Daleiden. Daleidan made headlines five years ago when his organization, the Center for Medical Progress, for an investigative journalist story, secretly recorded and posted videos of Planned Parenthood executives agreeing to sell fetal organs and tissue of aborted babies for profit, which is illegal. He has been ordered to pay $600,000 restitution by a judge with ties to Planned Parenthood. Peter Breen gives us the latest on the saga. If you'd like to donate to David Daleiden's defense fund, you may do so here.

And, yesterday, Gus' grandsons both started back to school, in person. Gus invites listeners who have children or grandchildren to call in and share how their kids are going back. Are they going in-person or virtually.

  • Deacon David: September 01, 2020

    We had the “We baptize you…” situation 14 years ago. At that time it was reported to our Archdiocesan chancery who investogated the validity. It was decided that “We” contains “I” within it (e.g., “I and you all baptize…”) so while illicit it was still considered valid.

    Now with the Vatican ruling we have over 100+ baptism to investigate just at pur parish. The priest who used this formula was also pastor at 3 other parishes and is now deceased so cannot go to him for clarification as to how many, how long, etc.

    Many people affected see “rebaptism” as the Church being petty and even supersititious with words. Most laity I chat with see it silliness over a pronoun. Tough to get the real reason through to them.
