The Patrick Madrid Show: February 26, 2024 – Hour 1

Delving deep, Patrick uncovers the fascinating role of church fathers in verifying biblical texts, debates the condition of the Garden of Eden, and probes the profound meaning behind Jesus’ miracle in Mark 8. Patrick navigates through complex pastoral situations, like attending weddings outside the Church, offering wisdom and guidance. Plus, he demystifies Catholic doctrines with a spotlight on intercession, the unique mediation of Jesus, and the process of beatification, all while engaging with listener questions on topics as varied as the validity of different Bibles and the moral landscape of DNA testing.

  • Peter – Are there separate ceremonies for beatifications and sanctification when it comes to making Saints?
  • Patrick comments on 23andMe’s Fall from $6 Billion to nearly nothing
  • Joy 9-years-old – Was the Garden of Eden really heaven? (07:52)
  • Isaac – In Mark 8 Jesus heals a blind man in two-stages. What is the importance of Jesus healing him in two steps?
  • Eileen – My in-law is married to a woman who was not annulled. Can I even enter their home if they invite me over?
  • Armando – I try to defend the Catholic Church to the guys I work with. I was told that the Catholic bible is not the real bible. How can I defend my faith to non-Catholic Christians? (24:05)
  • Rick – You sent me some DVDs to use in prison ministry which have been great. If we take the Eucharist but don’t believe that it is really the body of Christ, is that sin?
  • Bernadette – How should I dispose of a Divine Office breviary, or the religious items I get in the mail?
  • What is the difference between tithing and almsgiving?
