The Patrick Madrid Show: January 16, 2024 – Hour 3

Patrick takes queries from callers about specific meditative practices and their compatibility with Catholic teaching, from a Hawaiian meditative practice and the use of the word “chakra” in essential oils to using meditative tapes that were popular in the 80’s. Patrick also offers guidance on dealing with personal and family matters, such as how to approach a son’s behavior with his fiancée and whether it’s appropriate to have a plot of land blessed for interring family members’ remains.

  • Mary Ann – Patrick, you have brought more clarity and I’m closer to God because of you. Thank you!
  • Jessie – Ho’oponopono is a Hawaiian practice of forgiveness, is it okay for us to practice that?
  • Jane – I am related to a Catholic woman whose ashes will be scattered on her property when she dies. If I am able to get the ashes, can I have a priest bless my land and keep the ashes here?
  • Patrick responds to a listener who is disappointed in the show for missing an opportunity when talking to a young man who called in earlier today
  • Mike – There is an ancient form of meditation by Roy Masters. Is that okay for me to do?
  • Danna – My mom was thinking about getting buried in a Mormon cemetery. Is that okay? (25:47)
  • Chris – How do you deal with a sister who lives in the past and is there a good bible verse about this?
  • Judith – Should I use essential oils that use terms like “chakra”?
  • Glenda – My daughter’s father died and requested he be scattered in the black hills. What should we do?
  • Maria – Instead of complaining today, people should be thankful that we have Relevant Radio and not to judge others but look inwardly.
  • Mike – Blessing of same sex couples seems like the camel’s nose under the tent.
  • Vincent – Son is engaged to a woman who is disrupting the family. What should we do? (47:18)
