The Patrick Madrid Show: April 22, 2024 – Hour 2

Patrick unwraps the beauty and mystery of the Eucharist with insights from new converts. He tackles queries about why Catholics may receive only the body or the blood during Mass and explores historical practices like intinction. Shifting focus, a lively discussion unfolds with Dorothy about the Catholic Church’s stance on pro-life issues and the evolution of political allegiances over time. Patrick uncovers how historical figures have shaped perceptions and dives into the importance of educating our communities on core Catholic teachings.


  • Denise – I just became Catholic and I am trying to understand why we don’t receive the blood anymore? (00:45)
  • Susan – My husband has a niece and she has been married for a long time with no children. She decided that she needed one and did artificial insemination. (09:47)
  • Ryan – It was explained to me that God is outside of things/human constructs and that is how we are able to receive all of him even though we are only eating the bread. (22:53)
  • Dorothy – How do we educate our fellow Catholics about the evils of abortion? (28:34)
  • Rafael – My dad always told me to vote democrat. I realized that the party had changed when Mother Teresa was going to battle it out with them on abortion. (40:57)
