The Patrick Madrid Show: April 04, 2024 – Hour 2

Patrick holds a touching conversation with Mike, who shares the poignant story of his wife’s passing during the pandemic and the complications around receiving the sacrament of the anointing of the sick. Patrick discusses the importance of priestly presence in sacramental rites and the church’s provision of a plenary indulgence for those unable to receive such sacraments. He also talks about the boundless love and mercy of God, and how those grieving can find solace and support.
