The Patrick Madrid Show: October 17, 2023 – Hour 1

Special Guest Host Fr. Matthew Spencer discusses the importance of specific prayers and their ability to guide our actions and bring about peace. We tackle the challenge of forgiveness and the struggle to let go of control, and whether or not to meet with someone who has caused deep wounds. Fr. Matthew patiently and gently talks with callers as he encourages them to trust in God’s will even when it differs from their own desires.
