The NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, otherwise known as March Madness, begins tomorrow so Gus, who hasn't followed college basketball at all, enlists the listeners' help to pick his brackets.
Also, Gus welcomes Delone Arabo to the Conversion Corner. Delone was born and raised Catholic, although he admits it was purely a cultural identification. He became an atheist after a friend died and he was nearly killed in a car accident. Delone shares with Gus the profound events that led to his full conversion, which you can read about here.
And, all this week, Gus has been conducting a parish mission at his home parish and he spoke to a man named Danny last night who told him that his son, who was going through sacramental preparation for confirmation, decided he wanted to quit midway through and didn't want to go to mass anymore. Gus talks with listeners about this issue and whether or not "forcing" your teenage children to go to the Sacraments is a help or a hindrance.
