Is it a sin to wear religious items like rosary beads, or clothing items featuring the images of saints? A woman calls Father Dave wondering if she can give her boyfriend a pair of socks with the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe on them. She's not sure if this is appropriate because she was taught that wearing religious items such as rosary beads was a sin, but she points out that her boyfriend does have a deep devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe. Father Dave gives her some insight on when it is acceptable to wear such clothing. (Original Air 12-20-16)
