The Patrick Madrid Show: December 13, 2022 – Hour 3

Patrick answers questions about praying novena, having funeral masses for non-Catholics, do priests have an obligation to do funeral Masses, and why was the paten taken away from Mass?

  • Sarah – Why do you need to say 15 prayers a day for the Saint Andrew Novena?
  • Kate – Can you have a funeral Mass at a Catholic Church if you are not Catholic?
  • Kathy – I learned, this weekend, that the owner of a bakery I go to does witchcraft. Should I tell others about this?
  • Pete – Does the priest have an obligation to do funeral Masses?
  • Donna – What is the purpose of the paten and why was taken away?
  • Christina – Christmas Festival didn’t talk about Mary and Joseph. Can I try to bring the Christmas story back?
  • Mary – Communion in the hand: I respect your opinion on this but I don’t think it is disrespectful for people to receive in the hand. Didn’t the early church give communion in the hand?
  • Gabriel – My ex and I had a baby out of wedlock. Do I need to invite my ex to the child’s baptism?
  • Jim – What is the difference between receiving on an unconsecrated hand or an unconsecrated tongue?
