We get a lot of questions of faith on the Busted Halo Show. And although every question is equally important, sometimes we think that the audience themselves may be able to tackle some of the queries we get. This is when we “call on the congregation” for assistance. Do you think you could have helped out with the listener question: are both species equal? As in, can I take JUST the eucharist OR the wine and fulfill the sacrament? See how your answer would have stacked up against our listeners’. Also, Father Dave reassures a potentially anxious caller’s question about the state of the yet-to-be-fully-converted soul. (Originally aired: 08/07/09)…
