The Patrick Madrid Show: September 19, 2023 – Hour 2

From the miraculous stories of women who defied doctors’ warnings about childbirth, to the profound significance of a rarely performed Mass, to the advice given to a Catholic woman facing pressure to move in with her fiancé, Patrick covers it all.

  • Patrick comments more on John’s call from the end of the previous hour about taking birth control pills for medical reasons
  • Katherine – Perhaps Bella’s husband has been having this issue for a long time, maybe he lacked the emotional maturity for getting into marriage
  • Leah – Advice for John’s daughter: Napro technology from Pope John Paul II Institute. They prescribe bioidentical hormones and they get to the root cause of the menstrual cycle being off, or any infertility issues.
  • June – What did St. Paul mean when he said, “you should die to thyself.”
  • Patrick reads and responds to a Reddit post: My Catholic fiancé wants me to move in with him before the wedding
  • Father Len – I’m a priest in Milwaukee. Comment about home Masses: one of the most profound experiences I’ve had was doing the Mass of the viaticum.
  • Kathy – Comment on living together: My husband and I had 6 kids before we were married in the Church. When we came back to the Church, the priest had us live in separate quarters before our marriage. It was so great!
  • Benson – I lived with my now wife for 6 years before we got married. I didn’t think marriage was necessary.
  • Kathleen – I know of couples who lived together that broke up before the wedding.
  • Hermine – I just had my 6th baby (at 35 years old). My last pregnancy was very difficult. I have a very irregular menstruation. We have been trying NFP. We are getting concerned about my health.
