The Patrick Madrid Show: May 18, 2023 – Hour 1

Patrick answers listener questions about Catholic schools, is it okay to tell the truth when someone asks “how are you,” and what does the phrase “heaven suffers violence” mean in Mathew 11:12?

  • Nancy – You should do a show where you only take questions from people who want to debate you
  • Cathy – In the debate about gay marriage with Fr. Mike Schmitz you played the part in favor of it. Was it really hard to do that? Is that something you shouldn’t have done?
  • Mary – Disagrees with Patrick about Catholic schools. She says the “one by me stinks.” (this leads her to believe that all catholic schools are not good because they don’t pay enough)
  • Neil – Have you read “The Warning’ by Christine Watkins. Patrick says “yes” and shares his thoughts about it
  • Sandra – Is it okay to not tell people the truth if the truth is too personal? Is it okay to say “oh my God?” Is it okay to make up a sin in the confessional?
  • John – Sometimes the things the Church recognizes cannot be verified.
  • Teresa – What does the Church teach on Matthew 11:12: “heaven suffers violence”
