New York Post Op-Ed editor and Catholic Herald contributor Sohrab Ahmari calls in to join Gus in the Conversion Corner. Sohrab grew up in Iran, before moving to the U.S. at the age of 13 after he faced disciplinary action for bringing a video cassette of Star Wars into school. After years of being an atheist, Sohrab converted to Catholicism in 2016 and chronicles his story in his new autobiography "From Fire By Water: My Journey to the Catholic Faith."
Also, Gus remarks that we are exactly three weeks away from Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent. Although Gus admits to being a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of guy when it comes to Lenten penances, he urges his listeners to increase two things: prayer and spiritual reading. Gus invites listeners to call in and share which of the two they plan on doing more of and gives those who say pray a Holy Land Rosary and those who say reading a copy of A Minute in the Church: The Mass.
Later, Gus reads an email he received following yesterday's show in response to his segment on the debate on the legalization of marijuana. The listener mentioned that he recently came back to the Catholic faith and has a real struggle with the marijuana argument. Gus asks listeners whether or not they think smoking marijuana is a sin.
