The Patrick Madrid Show: April 17, 2023 – Hour 2

Special Guest Host Fr. Matthew Spencer

  • The Catechism of the Catholic Church – The need to bear witness to the Truth
  • James – Can I keep my baseball cap on while I do private prayers.
  • Deanne – Should I wear a veil anytime I go into a Catholic Church or just for Mass?
  • Corrie – Friend grew up atheist but is now exploring Christianity. What can I give to help him come into the Catholic Church?
  • Tom – My daughter is getting married. Can her fiancé’s non-Catholic family bring up the gifts for Mass?
  • Kyle – To my son, I explained that God is the Creator, Son, Redeemer, and Holy Spirit, and Sanctifier. Was that a good way of explaining the roles of the trinity?
  • Craig – Can a child who won’t live long after birth be baptized by a doctor even if he doesn’t know the parent’s wishes? Father Matthew revisits this question and offers more clarity on what is allowed at the very beginning of hour 3 of today’s show.
  • Mary Ann – When I’m in Church, I wear a veil to be reverent because I can’t genuflect anymore. However, when I help out cleaning the church, I don’t wear a veil because I’m not focused on worshiping God.
