Gus covers a multitude of topics on today's Seize the Day. First, he talks about a topic he did last week about marijuana and the bishops of Illinois' response to attempts to legalize its recreational use in their state. Gus talks about his past indiscretions with the drug and other things, all of which he's been very open about in the 12+ year history of the program. He talks about how it can be difficult to bring things like this up to your children in order to help them not make the same mistakes. We tend to mark those things as "confidential." Gus invites listeners to call in and share some of their past indiscretions and how, or if, they approached their kids with them.
Also, prayer is an essential part of the Christian life. Gus asks listeners to call in and share what they prayed for a month, a year, five years ago or more. It's something Gus refers to as incremental healing.
And, lastly, we are two weeks away from Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent 2019. Gus encourages more spiritual reading and more prayer and gives copies of A Minute in the Church or a Holy Land Rosary to those who call in and get on the air.
