The Patrick Madrid Show: December 20, 2023 – Hour 3

A catechist in RCIA seeks Patrick’s guidance on why the ending doxology of the Lord’s Prayer is not included in the Catholic version. Patrick explains the historical background and mentions the influence of the revision of the Mass in an effort to be more ecumenical towards Protestants. Additionally, he recommends resources for further reading on Vatican II and the changes made to the Mass.

  • Patrick – At a healing Mass I went to on Saturday, the lay people prayed over people. Was that okay?
