The Patrick Madrid Show: January 29, 2024 – Hour 1

Today we tackled the real-life challenges of integrating faith with family life, from supporting young parents in their mission to raise children within the church to addressing the complexities of annulments and remarriage in the Catholic faith. We shared heartfelt advice for those feeling judged at Mass, affirming that all are welcome, little ones included. Tune in for wisdom on navigating marriage in accordance with church teachings, and remember, whether it’s divine mercy or sacred traditions, we’ve got resources to guide you.

  • Elderly mom leaving $2.8M inheritance to pets after she claims kids never visited her when she was sick
  • Jessica (email) – How best to explain “mercy” to grade school kids?
  • Jeff – I am Catholic but my girlfriend is not. Could we get married in the Catholic Church? (14:31)
  • Cindy – I have been on the same journey as Jeff. I want to encourage the man to reconcile with his current wife. It is still a valid sacrament. It’s what I did and I’m so blessed for it.
  • Tracy – My brother was married in a Lutheran church but concelebrated by a Catholic priest. Is it valid?
  • Britney – A priest told us that our children were too distracting to sit at the front of the Church. I told him that since it was a family Mass we should be able to sit in the front. Was that okay? (40:59)
