The Patrick Madrid Show: October 11, 2022 – Hour 1

Patrick spends this hour dealing with the sensitive topic of marital relations. This particular hour is for mature audiences only.

  • Helen – Her pastor, during confession, said that the marital acts she and her husband were participating in was not a sin.
  • In marriage, God wants us to be open to the possibility of the transmission of human life, which takes place in a particular way, and that marital act can only be morally completed in one way.
  • Joe (14:39) – I’m not a Catholic yet, but I need to baptize my daughter and the Catholic Church is making me wait. Should I have her baptized in a different church that won’t make us wait?
  • Steve (22:50) – Does every marital touch need to be open to procreation? Are variations on a theme in regards to the marital act a mortal sin?
  • Juliette – What about when two people are courting?
  • Email from anonymous (44:42) – I’ve been married but we were never able to consummate our marriage. Is our marriage still valid?
  • Maria – Could you write a book about this topic? You have made me so much more aware of my sins, which I never knew were wrong. Thank you!
