The Patrick Madrid Show: November 29, 2023 – Hour 3

Patrick takes calls from a variety of listeners discussing concerns about the influence that popular culture and public schools have on their children. Patrick shares his thoughts and wisdom on the importance of making the financial sacrifices necessary for parents to put their kids in Catholic schools.

  • David – My son called earlier and I wanted to thank you for backing me up with your words when talking with my son earlier today about Harry Potter.
  • Anonymous email – How important is it to send my kids to Catholic school? (06:51)
  • Vince – I find that a lot of schools will give you financial assistance if you ask them. That’s how I am able to put my kids in private school.
  • Lisa – We sent our daughter to private school and needed to trust God with how we would cover it, and God provided with surprises. We lived really tight and were able to make it. (20:42)
  • Monica – My husband and I sacrificed a lot to put our daughter into Catholic school and it led to him converting to Catholicism.
  • Karen – Do Catholic schools have empowerment scholarships in other states?
  • Julian – My cousin was recently murdered. Was it God’s will for my cousin to die and go to heaven?
  • Suzie – A woman told me that it was wrong for Catholics to observed Sunday as the Sabbath. How do I respond to that? (36:49)
  • Sue – I was a single parent and raised 3 kids in the Catholic school. I asked if I could work for their tuition.
  • Steve – What do you think about calling public schools “government schools”? That might make people think more carefully about where they are sending their kids.
  • John – I am a protestant pastor and I struggle with purgatory. If Jesus already paid the price, why would we need to go to purgatory?
