The Patrick Madrid Show: October 31, 2023 – Hour 1

Patrick delves into the legalization of drug use and the dangers it poses, the linguistic nuances in biblical interpretations, and we hear the fascinating journey of one individual’s return to the Catholic Church. Additionally, we’ll tackle topics like guardian angels, contacting the dead, the ontological implications of Baptism, and the so-called mixing of paganism and Christianity. We’ll also offer advice on dealing with anxiety and worry, examine the dangers of marijuana use, analyze customs like dia de los Muertos, and shed light on indulgences and restitution for forgiven sins.

  • Rick – If someone just uses marijuana occasionally, is that mortal sin? (00:48)
  • Mike – Why do we say “He rose again” in the creed?
  • Todd – I think the draw of weed is that it is seen as the drug of rebellion.
  • Katie – My brother is Catholic and married a Jew by a Catholic Priest. She converted to the Catholic Faith. Do they have a blessed marriage?
  • Matthew – Marijuana has started an anxiety disorder. I started feeling better but then after I smoked I started feeling bad again.
  • Charles – I want to give credit to all the people who have taught Catholics. I wasn’t poorly catechized; I just wasn’t open to God’s word.
  • Jeff – Jesus rising again: I think He rose from the dead, went to hell to free souls and then rose again
  • Mark – I think the allure of marijuana is that we all want to be filled up with something and they try to use marijuana to do that. It does make you more stupid.
  • Brian – Do you need to have an intention before you get a Plenary Indulgence? Can you get an indulgence for praying along during the Family Rosary Across America? (46:37)
