The Patrick Madrid Show: March 27, 2024 – Hour 2

Patrick engages with callers who express their skepticism and concern about the statistics that 77% of Catholics do not attend mass regularly. They discuss the cultural aspect of Catholicism and the importance of proper catechesis in nurturing a deeper understanding and practice of the faith. They also highlight the impact of Relevant Radio in educating and inspiring listeners to return to the practice of their Catholic faith. The conversation delves into the significance of the Eucharistic Congress and the need for a more fervent and committed Catholic community.


  • Katherine – I think that poll (from the end of the last hour) is wrong about Catholics. They aren’t including the senior citizens who can’t make it to the Church but they do watch Mass on-line. (00:42)
  • Ann – Catholics not going to Mass: I was in the military and we would go to military chapels all over the world and people were surprised that we went to Church on Sunday. (08:14)
  • Tracy – A priest told me that it was a mortal sin to deliberately watch mass instead of going in person. He also said that you’d probably get different answers from different priests. (18:36)
  • Lorraine – Is it a sin to start having doubts about your religion? (21:00)
  • Sam – Have you seen the swallows that fly near Mission San Juan Capistrano during Saint Joseph’s Feast Day?
  • John – What is the best form of prayer when going to Adoration? (37:32)
  • Sofia – 77% of Catholics not going to Church: I was one of those until they closed the Churches during Covid. That brought me back to the Church. (41:37)
  • Amy – My husband is a devout Catholic, but he doesn’t love me. (44:13)
