The Patrick Madrid Show: February 24, 2023 – Hour 1

Patrick answers listener questions about pianos and guitars at Mass, how long did he consider being a priest, does abstinence during Lent also apply to having sexual relations, and how do we get rid of the effects of our sins?

  • Dan – How and why did the piano make its debut at Mass?
  • Sr. Darlene – Is there a book for a Buddhist who is interested in Catholicism? Patrick recommends “Fundamentals of the Faith: Essays in Christian Apologetics” by Peter Kreeft
  • Rick – How long did Patrick Madrid consider being a priest? How and when did you know the Priesthood wasn’t for you?
  • Dan – Does abstinence during Lent also apply to not having sexual relations?
  • Patsy – Is the book “23 minutes in Hell” a good book to read? Patrick recommends “The Dogma of Hell” instead.
  • Joseph – How do you work out the problem about the Filioque (Latin: “and from the Son”) between the catholic and orthodox church?
  • Deborah – When we go to confession and do our penance we are absolved of our sins. However, the effects of the sins are still with us. How do I get rid of the effects of my sins?
  • Are there any resources to learn about the new heaven and new earth?
