One of the issues addressed at the Synod on Young People is Catholics who home-school and there appears to be a sentiment against it from the bishops and it's appeared in some of the language used in expressing their concerns. It's an issue that's close to Gus' heart, as he's had two kids go through the school system and two who were home-schooled through 8th grade. Gus goes over some of the bishops' comments and invites listeners to call in and give their opinions. We hear from many in our audience who do home-school.
Gus talks about the continuing Synod on Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment, which goes to the end of October, and Gus asks listeners about the clarity, or lack thereof, in the Church's outreach to young people and how it can be better.
Also, today is the Feast of St. Ignatius of Antioch; one of the early Church fathers. Gus plays a game called Ignatius or Bible, where he reads a listener a quote from either the writings of St. Ignatius or the Bible, from the book "The Faith of the Early Fathers" by William Jurgens, and they have to guess which one it's from. Regardless of whether they get it right or wrong, Gus awards those who get on with a copy of one of the volumes of A Minute in the Church.
St. Ignatius of Antioch, pray for us.
