Gus talks about the "messaging" of the Catholic Church. We hear a lot about that these days, particularly in the sphere of social justice, but does the Church focus too much on that on local, national and a worldwide level? Gus asks listeners.

“Mary conceived without sin pray for us who have recourced to thee.”
Catholic social teaching is the core of the gospel. Unless we read, reflect upon and live Matthew 25:31-46, love our neighbor as Jesus taught us in the parable of Good Samaritan, and understand and live out the 7 principles of Catholic Social Teaching as we are taught by the USCCB we will not reach heaven. All that “personal holiness” talk and going to Latin Mass is meaningless unless we act to love Jesus as He is in the poor and marginalized. Consider the lives and writings of St. Oscar Romero and Pope Paul VI who are being canonized on October 14 in Rome. Their lives are examples of how to live and work for the Lord Jesus in the pursuit of Social Justice and attain heaven by doing so. Let me suggest you take one of your programs, read Matthew 25:31-46 as an introduction and ask your listeners to call in and discuss how they are living it out. That would help Catholics and all of us to understand more deeply how we can return to living the gospel as Jesus taught us by word and example. Deacon Don Meyer
