The Patrick Madrid Show: November 22, 2023 – Hour 2

Special Guest Host Fr. Matthew Spencer explores the intriguing dynamics between sacred and popular music in the mass, and how it relates to bringing loved ones back to the Catholic Church. He shares his own personal journey of using music to connect with his faith and the differences between popular and sacred music. Listeners also call in with questions about the Latin expression “ADMG” and the significance of getting married in the Church versus outside of it.

  • Cyrus asks Fr. Matthew how to convince folks going to mega churches, that seem more like concert venues with praise and worship music, to come to a more sacred experience that we find at Mass
  • Catherine – AMDG for the Greater Glory of God: What are the Latin Words for this phrase?
  • Martin – When I get married do I need to be married in the Catholic Church or can I get married civically? (12:36)
  • David – First Saturday Devotion: I only offered the intention for the immaculate on the 1st Month. Do the other months still count or do I need to start over?
  • Anita – I am home bound. I love Gregorian Chant and listen to it in the background during Mass. Can we bring Gregorian Chant back to Mass?
  • Anonymous – I’m dating a woman I’m not physically attracted to but I love her. Is the lack of physical attraction a problem I should be worried about?
  • William – If someone is in hell, is it not worth it to say Masses for him?
  • Anonymous email – What is the line between being skeptical and knowing when God is speaking to me?
  • Brad – I am Catholic but I performed a civil marriage for my child. What should I do to rectify this?
