The Patrick Madrid Show: January 03, 2024 – Hour 2

Patrick discusses a hot topic about the former president of Harvard, Claudine Gay, and her recent resignation amidst allegations of plagiarism. Patrick and a caller delve into a thought-provoking discussion about the infusion of souls in identical twins, drawing on their beliefs and questioning the possibilities. The conversation raises intriguing points about conjoined twins and leaves listeners pondering the transcendence of God and the complexities of the human spirit.

  • Pat (email) – The Harvard President has stepped down
  • Patrick comments on accusations of Claudine Gay’s plagiarism
  • Joe – I think when the ovum splits is when the second soul is given, because that’s when God would give us a guardian angel.
  • Kathy – I’m struggling with the Mariology of the Church. 1) Where in the bible did it say that Mary was born without sin? 2) In Matthew’s genealogy, he ends with Joseph, not Mary. Why? (20:15)
  • Clare – When I was confirmed, I wasn’t given a confirmation name. (29:34)
  • Ann – I have a 23-year old niece who has moved to London and fallen away from the Church. I messaged her that I hope she would return to the Church. She responded: “I am very glad that you have found a place in Catholicism. I don’t feel I have a place.” How should I respond?
  • Patrick recommends “Tactics: A Game Plan for Discussing Your Christian Convictions” by Gregory Koukl
  • Kent – I went to confession after 50 years because of Patrick’s encouragement! The confession was a letdown. There were no prayers, and no act of contrition. I did name some sins, but I didn’t have a chance to name all my sins. Did it count? (42:36)
