The Patrick Madrid Show: July 27, 2023 – Hour 3

Patrick answers listener questions about receiving communion from a lay person, why is the Sabbath day on a Sunday, why do we need to go to confession, and what’s the moral difference between contraception and Natural Family Planning?

  • How do you know if you’re in a state of grace?
  • Andrea – What books in the bible should I recommend for a friend to believe in God? Patrick recommends “A Handbook of Catholic Apologetics”
  • Jay – Is it okay to receive communion from a lay person?
  • Natalie – Mortal sin and full knowledge: A family member just got married and trying to live a catholic life but they use birth control, what should I do?
  • Tom – Our experience of time is the result of the Mass of the earth and its bending of energy. We know time is not fixed. The further away from the center of the earth the less time affects you.
  • Sandra – Why is the Sabbath day on a Sunday?
  • Sarah – Why do we need to go to Confession?
  • Andres – I have trouble walking so I can’t go to Mass as much. Is it okay for me to watch Mass on TV instead?
