The Patrick Madrid Show: April 09, 2024 – Hour 3

Patrick grapples with a listener’s poignant inquiry about the potential salvation of non-Catholics, candidly addressing the complexities of faith outside the visible Catholic Church and the Church’s stance on inclusivity in salvation.


  • Doug – I am a retired truck driver and never had a problem getting to Mass.  Normally you don’t need to drive on the weekend and you can find local Church’s. Buying a folding bicycle is good too.
  • Rebecca – Why is 2nd grade the appropriate age to receive communion in the Catholic Church? (06:35)
  • Diana – Because of my schedule, I often go to other parishes in other diocese. Since I am not very wealthy, I just give money to the Church I go to. Is that okay?
  • Agnes – After Jesus rose from the dead, where was he when he was not with the Apostles? (14:31)
  • Email – Can I take a gluten-free host? (19:37)
  • Joshua – Is it a sin to make the Sabbath Sunday? (22:11)
  • Julia – How can I tell my daughter that the Catholic Church is better than any other religion? She is 19 and doesn’t want to go to any of the services?
  • Jade – Why do they say that Jesus gave authority to the Catholic Church since St. Peter died before the Catholic Church existed.
