The Patrick Madrid Show: April 16, 2024 – Hour 2

Fr. Matthew Spencer discusses how the development of spiritual practices, like the Holy Mass after the resurrection, is an organic process guided by the Holy Spirit and requires patience from the apostles. Our faith journey is a continual evolution, and Fr. Matthew underscores the importance of focusing on approved and time-honored traditions while remaining open to insights that are in harmony with the Church’s teachings.
