The Patrick Madrid Show: July 14, 2022 – Hour 3

Patrick takes on caller questions about annulments, unkept promises to God, was Mary baptized, the difference between mercy and grace, did Mary and Joseph have a valid marriage, and is lying always wrong 


  • Marie – I am divorced and never remarried. Should I seek an annulment even though I don’t plan on getting remarried? Does it matter that my Ex-husband was not confirmed in the Catholic Church when we got married? 
  • Patrick recommends “The Sacraments and Their Celebrations” by Fr. Nicholas Halligan 
  • Tony – I made a promise to God that I can’t keep. What should I do? 
  • Mike – Regarding Destroying Junk Mail: I agree with you but I would like to suggest a case where Planned Parenthood sends something to me and knowing that they sent it to other I went to their mail boxes and destroyed the letters. That would be wrong. 
  • Zenaida – I have been saying OMG as a force of habit. When I confessed to the Priest, he told me I could say OMZ.  
  • Was Mary ever baptized? 
  • Marge – Are Mercy and Grace the same thing? 
  • Paul – If Peter was the first Pope, why didn’t he have the last word in the Bible? 
  • If consummation is required for a marriage to be valid, did Mary and Joseph have a valid marriage? 
  • Charlie – Is lying always wrong? 
  • Richard – A Priest said that if you hear someone blaspheme, just say ‘pray for us’ to add to their phrase. 
  • Lori – Offers alternatives to cursing 
  • Peter – So many people take the name of the Lord in vain
