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

Patrick answers listener questions about purgatory, can someone be “baptized by the Word,” and is it okay to go to a non-Catholic funeral?

  • Marie Therese – She has been meeting people that say that there is no purgatory. They say: what proof can you give me? Did God said anything about purgatory? How can she answer?
  • Michael – How do you explain to a protestant why we believe in Sacraments?
  • Email – Can someone be “baptized by the Word?”
  • Christine – Funeral Question: I have an aunt who was baptized as a Catholic, but didn’t practice. Can I go to her non-Catholic funeral in a Protestant Church?
  • Larry – My wife died 6 years ago at 3:16 am. Many times she comes to me at 3:16 am. 
  • Bob – My wife and I were married 30 years ago in the Catholic Church. I was unmarried and she was divorced from her un-Baptized husband. Is our marriage valid?
  • MaryAnn – My brother has been married for 24 years, they both have annulments, but they haven’t had their marriage blessed? My sister-in-law has memory loss, but the priest says they need pre-Cana. What should we do?
  • Paul – I once heard Patrick mention a facility for those with an alcohol addiction. What was the name of that place? Patrick recommends
  • Patricia – My husband died two years ago and he claimed he was a non-believer. Would my husband receive the final judgement and go to heaven?
