The Patrick Madrid Show: March 25, 2024 – Hour 1

Patrick has a profound conversation with a courageous caller, Beth, who shares her journey of healing from past trauma and family dysfunction. They discuss the complexities of forgiveness, the importance of seeking proper counseling and spiritual support, and addressing unresolved pain. Her story serves as a powerful reminder that healing is a process, and seeking professional help and spiritual guidance is key.


  • Beth – I was raped by my brother-in-law when I was 13. My family says that I should get over it since it only happened once. It opens up the wound when I interact with my family. Can I forgive my family without interacting with them? (01:08)
  • Pamela – Is it necessary to reach out to the person who you forgive? My Ex was abusive to our kids and even though they forgive him, they don’t know if they should reach out to him? What does forgiveness actually look like? (24:57)
  • Michael – We read the Passion of Christ and the Deacon ask us to sit for the entire Passion reading. Is that okay? (36:54)
  • Fred – What do you think about the statement, “no one can be sure about their salvation”? (38:34)
  • Linda – Is there a relationship between Easter and the pagan holiday? (44:12)
