Gus talks about the Sunday obligation and explains why it's a mortal sin to skip mass and talks about reasons why it's OK to miss mass. For instance, if you're sick or in the hospital, you aren't bound to the obligation. He invites listeners to call in and talk about the reinstatement of the Sunday obligation in many dioceses and whether or not it's going to have any impact on people returning to mass.
Also, Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, calls in to talk about the Supreme Court agreeing to hear the case involving the State of Mississippi's 15-week abortion ban. She also talks with Gus about Planned Parenthood dropping its lawsuit against the State of Texas for not including their abortion services in its Medicaid program following the release of the Center for Medical Progress' undercover videos of PPFA executives illegally negotiating to purchase aborted baby body parts. Kristan explains that the reason Planned Parenthood dropped its lawsuit was because, if they pressed ahead, they would have to admit their wrongdoing under oath.
And, many bishops in Germany continue to spread confusion by offering communion to Protestants at an ecumenical convention last weekend. One priest, Fr. Johannes zu Eltz, apologized to Protestants in attendance for what he termed "Catholic arrogance" concerning the Church's teaching on the Eucharist. Gus refutes Fr. zu Eltz's statement and explains how the Church's timeless stance is not arrogance but an act of love and charity.
