We are a week out of the beginning of Lent and Gus invites listeners to call in and share what they took on or gave up last Lent and how it went for them. And, later, since Ash Wednesday is only one week away, Gus does another round of Reading or Rosary.
Gus is also joined by Catholic author Gary Zimak who calls in to talk about his book "Give Up Worry for Lent" and goes over some of the chief causes of worry and how we can curtail much of it.
And, Gus touches upon a news item out of Alabama where a legislator has proposed a bill that would require men to have a vasectomy at the age of 50 or after their third child, whichever comes first. This is an over-the-top response to the state's controversial proposed abortion ban. Gus says that our perspective on this ridiculous bill is how abortion proponents view an abortion ban and further elucidates that their hearts are hardened to the notion that the child in womb who's being aborted is indeed a human being, which, to us, is no laughing matter.
