The Patrick Madrid Show: April 10, 2024 – Hour 3

Are you unnerved by the idea of a cashless society? Today, Patrick ponders whether it’s a step towards totalitarianism or just a change in currency mediums. He tackles the mark of the beast and privacy implications, discovering a balance between caution and freedom. In a world swamped with pessimism, Patrick shares advice on overcoming media-induced anxiety—counseling a focus on faith, family, hobbies, and unplugging from the news cycle.


  • Patrick shares a powerful scene from the movie Days of Wine and Roses where a husband admits to his wife that he’s an alcoholic and that she is too, and they need to stop drinking to survive
  • Steve – How many degrees of separation are needed to use deadly force to protect my family? (05:42)
  • Jorge – I need some guidance on everything that is happening in the world today and in our Church (25:46)
  • Joey – Killing out of self-defense: Do you think that counters what Thomas Aquinas said?
  • Francie – I would like to support the woman whose kids are fallen away. My children all fell away from the Church. I have been lukewarm Catholic but then I had a conversion and prayed really hard.
  • Tony – My kids do martial arts. When they walk into the dojo they bow before they enter and before they leave. We bow in Church so is it confusing for kids to bow before the master? (45:42)
  • Al – God does have an angry side to him. If the government decides to do digital currency, we have a right to defend ourselves.
