Gus talks about how there are a few Church leaders and priests who believe parishioners should be vaccinated before coming to mass. Gus gets listener reaction to that idea.
Also, Dr. Matthew Bunson, Washington bureau chief of ETWN News, calls in to talk about the latest Catholic news, including Pope Francis' trip to Rome last week, his message to Iraqi Christians, who have become a distinct minority in the wake of ISIS, the mixed messages about the morality of some of the COVID vaccines by some U.S. bishops and a recent decision handed down by the Supreme Court regarding religious speech.
