Gus talks about the "rise of the none's," people who identify as having no religion. Many of those people are former Catholics, and the number in the U.S. seems to be around the 25% mark. Gus decides to focus more on the positive and talk about people who are entering the Catholic Church. He invites converts, or people who have friends or loved ones who are converts, to call in and talk about what attracted them to Catholicism.
Also, Dr. Matthew Bunson, Washington bureau chief for EWTN, calls in to discuss some Catholic news items with Gus, including the recent 5-4 Supreme Court decision that prevents the State of New York from indiscriminately closing down houses of worship through arbitrary COVID restrictions, recent developments in Vatican Bank reform and the memoirs of Cardinal George Pell who was falsely accused of sexual abuse and imprisoned for nearly two years.
Afterwards, Gus goes over a couple of more news items, including the announcement that the United Kingdom has approved a coronavirus vaccine and will begin administering it next week. Also, on the pro-life front, a recent report that shows that the number of abortions in the U.S. are on the decline and that the Supreme Court justices are meeting privately to discuss whether or not they'll take on a couple of court cases that challenge Roe v. Wade.
