The Patrick Madrid Show: January 03, 2024 – Hour 1

Patrick delves into the meaning and implication of the word “damn” in a theological context, shedding light on the distinction between blasphemy and swearing. Additionally, Patrick responds to questions about choosing confirmation names and the possibility of twins sharing a single soul at conception. The conversation with a caller about the dispute between Satan and Michael over the body of Moses leads to an intriguing exploration of the early traditions surrounding the birth of Jesus. Finally, Patrick discusses the concept of a post-Christian era and the contrasting realities of Christian resurgence in parts of the world, challenging a narrow view of the global landscape of the Catholic Church.
