The Patrick Madrid Show: April 02, 2024 – Hour 2

Patrick tackles a common struggle faced by many people – the difficulty of waking up early in the morning to attend daily Mass and receive the Eucharist. Patrick offers practical advice, including asking for help from your guardian angel, setting multiple alarms, and cultivating the virtue of moderation. The topic then shifts to a discussion about the challenges of interfaith relationships and the potential friction between different Christian denominations.

  • Patricia – What do you do if you have a still born baby? Do you call a priest or have a funeral? (22:48)
  • Carl – I know someone who believes in the true presence but goes to a protestant church and receives communion. (27:49)
  • Elana (email) – What does “Let the dead bury the dead” mean? (36:39)
  • Keith – Where do souls in Purgatory fall in categories of the Church? (40:52)
  • Joe – I have a friend who is Calvinist and was sick so I prayed for him through the intersession of a saint and my friend got better. He wanted to call it a miracle but I didn’t want to make too big a deal out of it because it was a saint who healed him. Is that okay?
  • Gwen – Does Mass have to be at 3pm on Good Friday?
