The Patrick Madrid Show: April 08, 2024 – Hour 3

Patrick unravels moral complexities, explaining why a non-Catholic, unmarried couple may share a bed at their parents’ house and how the natural institution of marriage carries validity outside of religious bounds. He tackles theological inquiries, including the necessity of Sacraments for salvation and the role of grace, using the example of the good thief next to Jesus.
