Gus talks about some news out of the Diocese of Lexington, Kentucky, where Bishop John Stowe recently mandated that priests who are unvaccinated can no longer minister to the sick, elderly or homebound. Gus asks listeners, if you knew your priest was unvaccinated, would that cause you to not want to attend that mass?
Later, Gus is joined by Deacon Lou Aaron in the Conversion Corner. Deacon Lou grew up Catholic but descended into alcoholism after a co-worker gave him a mixed drink at work. Blessed with cooking skills, Deacon Lou ascended in the cooking world, appearing on cooking shows and in cookbooks, all of which concealed his alcoholism. He shares his miraculous healing story from alcoholism, his return to the Catholic faith and his formation in the permanent diaconate with Gus.
I am appalled in general how the Catholic hierarchy has handled just about everything related to Covid. This bishop is a disgrace.
