How to Save a Life (Special Podcast Highlight)

In a recent episode of The Patrick Madrid Show, an extraordinary moment took place. Did you hear it? 

Alicia, a caller from the Chicagoland area, reached out to Patrick Madrid for advice. She was on her way to obtain abortion pills and was filled with uncertainty and fear. Patrick encouraged Alicia to consider the consequences of her decision, explaining that choosing abortion meant someone had to die, and that by giving life to her child, she could experience the joy of watching her child grow, graduate, and live a fulfilling life. Alicia, touched by Patrick’s words, decided not to go through with the abortion, describing her call as a sign from God.

You may wonder how Patrick felt during that conversation. What was running through his mind? Was he nervous?

Cale Clarke talked to Patrick about this conversation. He praised Patrick’s ability to convey the truth clearly and charitably, noting that he doesn’t shy away from speaking the plain truth. Patrick explained that he uses the Socratic method to engage with callers, asking questions to lead them to discover the truth for themselves. He emphasized that it’s about pursuing truth and helping others see it without feeling pushed.

Patrick and Cale also discussed how important it is to approach such conversations with love and compassion, mirroring Christ’s example of speaking the truth without fear. Patrick shared that he relies on God’s grace in these moments and seeks to be honest and compassionate.

Patrick expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to make a difference in Alicia’s life and urged continued prayers for her and her unborn child, emphasizing that the journey is not over.
