Gus is back from his pilgrimage to the Holy Land and, after giving a preview of the trip and how his home was affected by Hurricane Ian, he plays a clip from yesterday's Conversation w/Cardinal Dolan where Cardinal Dolan talked with Bishop Frank Dewane of the Diocese of Venice, Florida, which was hit hardest by Hurricane Ian. Bishop Dewane gives an update of the death toll and the destruction and let's listeners know how they can help if they feel so moved.
Later, Fr. Robert Altier calls in to talk about his new book, "God's Plan for Your Marriage: An Exploration of Holy Matrimony from Genesis to the Wedding Feast of the Lamb." In addition to talking about the Catholic teaching on marriage in light of Sacred Scripture, Fr. Altier also shares his vocation story.
Also, Gus shares some Holy Land stories and shares how he was in the Holy Land when Hurricane Ian struck Florida last Thursday and only got back yesterday. Fortunately, his and Michelle's home sustained no damage. He talks about how, on the one hand, he feels blessed and, on the other, he has a bit of survivor's guilt because many homes in neighboring homes got severely damaged or destroyed.
