The Patrick Madrid Show: April 09, 2024 – Hour 2

Patrick ignites a vibrant conversation about using cell phones during Mass, addressing technology as both a tool for participation and a potential distraction. Patrick tackles tough topics like traditions and modern-day struggles, including addiction recovery and the historical significance of the term ‘Catholic.’ The discussions open a window to understanding the complexities of living out our faith in today’s world while staying true to its roots.


  • Patrick comments on using devices during Mass
  • Joe – I was in a rehab meeting and a girl explained a demonic harassment and she does self-harm.
  • Alfred – Why did the Church need to call itself “Catholic”? (12:43)
  • Roberto – Why are Novenas nine days long? (22:57)
  • Orlando – I am the sole provider for my family and am self-employed but it is not giving me enough money to survive. My brother is offering me a job where I need to be out 2 weeks, so I will miss Mass. Will that be okay?
  • Karen – If the priest omits part of the Nicene Creed at Mass, would it be okay for us to go to a different parish?
  • Steve – Is quoting the Church fathers the equivalent to the Pharisees saying we have Abraham as our Father?
