The Patrick Madrid Show: April 11, 2024 – Hour 1

Is it ever permissible to lie? Patrick explores St. Augustine’s take, dissects the Catechism’s stance, and weighs it against real-life, high-stakes scenarios. Patrick also tackles some intriguing biblical questions, from Mary’s role in Jesus’ miracle at Cana to the details surrounding His burial cloth.


  • Daniel – Is it always a sin to tell a lie? (01:00)
  • Yollie – Did Mary tell Jesus to make more wine at the Wedding of Cana? Did the soldiers break Jesus’ legs? (12:25)
  • Steve – In John 20: it says the burial clothes are two separate pieces, but the Shroud of Turin is only one piece of cloth. Why is there a discrepancy?
  • Email – Question about feeding tubes and end of life decisions
  • Neil (email) – My company only lets me invest half of my 401K the way I want, and the other half supports companies that support abortion. What should I do?
  • Matt (email) – What should we do if we receive unclear or seemingly extraordinary penances that may be nearly impossible to fulfill completely? (32:29)
  • Michelle – If we have a perfected body in heaven, do we get a perfected body in hell also? (40:12)
  • Miles – Having a questionable 401K is remote cooperation, much like a mail man delivering pornography. I don’t think it is wrong.
