The Patrick Madrid Show: November 16, 2022 – Hour 3

Patrick answers listener questions about if Holy Water is really real, how to talk meaningfully, yet concisely, about Advent, what is the difference between the soul and spirit, what to do with broken blessed rosaries, what is the Catholic understanding of “original sin,” and how to evangelize to older ex-Catholics

  • Raul – My friends tell me that Holy Water is not real. What should I say?
  • Vanessa – As a college student, I was asked to speak about Advent. How can I do this in a way that is concise and meaningful?
  • Evangeline – What is the difference between the soul and spirit?
  • Michelle – What should I do with blessed broken Rosaries?
  • Jake – I run a rosary company that fixes and disposes of rosaries. I find that if you give them to a priest they will sometimes bury the rosaries in a grave site.
  • Joshua – What should I do when evil tries to temp or intimidate me?
  • Aida – Why is Emanuel not used as often as the name Jesus in the bible?
  • Jonathan – I have the understanding that we lost the ability to choose. Could you explain what is the Catholic point of view on Original Sin?
  • Erica – We are visiting a family who are no longer Catholic. How can we prepare in case we have a chance to evangelize, especially since they are getting older?
  • Anna – I am living with someone who is unfaithful and abusive. We are not sacramentally married and I don’t know if I should get married to him or if would should separate. What should I do?
