The Patrick Madrid Show: January 10, 2023 – Hour 2

Patrick answers questions about the resurrection of the body, communion kneeling, do Godparents need to be present during the baptism, and what did the early Church teach about the Orthodox and Catholic split?

  • Dave – After the resurrection of the body will we be able to eat food or hug loved ones?
  • David – Is it actually true that the orthodox also receive communion kneeling? I thought only Catholics did that.
  • Benito – In my Church, they wipe everyone’s hands down as they are going to communion. Is that okay?
  • Lisa – Sometimes I just forget to receive on the tongue when I am using the rail because its a habit to receive on the hand.
  • Tony – Can a baby be baptized without the Godparent present?
  • Email – When I’m in the Priest line, I take Communion on the tongue. If not, I receive on the hand. Is that okay?
  • Philip – Could you explain what the early church taught between the Orthodox and Catholic split?
  • Denise – There’s a kneeler now at our church because of the new pastor!
  • Cecelia – Communion was being practiced in the old days of the Church. So, I think communion is okay in the hand.
  • Peter – If someone dies from an overdose, what are the chances they go to heaven?
  • Ann – The Church doesn’t favor cremation, so why can they distribute body parts of the Saints?
  • Robert – Why aren’t we calling lay people extraordinary ministers, instead of Eucharistic ministers?
