The Patrick Madrid Show: September 12, 2022 – Hour 1

Encore Presentation from September 1st

Patrick gives advice to the mom of a teenager who she fears is not excited about confirmation. He also helps George who is in a spiritual rut and Patrick points out that what he’s going through is spiritual dryness and how that might actually be a good thing.

  • Angelica – I really like the show. I am a new listener! My son is a teenager and he is not excited about Confirmation. Is it okay for me to say that there will be a cute girl in his class to help motivate him to go?
  • George – I am going through a spiritual rut right now. What should I do to get through this? Patrick recommends “The Interior Castle” by Saint Teresa of Ávila
  • Chia – Is it good for Catholic men to have a “Man Cave?”
  • Susan – How can I help my mentally ill niece? She see’s violent visions and hears voices, and I don’t know how to help her.
  • Sonia – I teach confirmation class and kids say that they are forced to be there. I tell Parents to ask about what the kids are learning to help them get engaged.
  • John – What was the name of drug treatment center run by monks?
  • Timothy – Thank you for all you do.
  • Raquel – My daughter is turning 18. She wants to get the vaccine to celebrate. How can I help her?
