The Patrick Madrid Show: October 16, 2023 – Hour 1

Special guest host, Fr. Matthew Spencer, dives into a wide range of topics, from the profession of faith for individuals coming into full communion with the Catholic Church, to the profound impact of St. Therese of Lesux’s “little way” on the Church. We explore the beauty and significance of the sacrament of the anointing of the sick, as well as the balance between personal piety and communal participation during the Eucharistic celebration. Join us as we delve into the Church’s teachings on relics, the spiritual battle at the moment of death, and the challenge of supporting LGBTQ individuals while living according to God’s will.
