The Patrick Madrid Show: April 26, 2024 – Hour 1

Patrick delves into the profound and deeply spiritual matter of administering sacraments to the ailing and elderly, especially those who may not have been baptized. Patrick discusses the Church’s approach to baptism as a prerequisite for receiving other sacraments, explaining how, in emergency situations, a quick baptism can be performed to allow for the anointing of the sick. This enlightening session underscores the Church’s flexibility in urgent times and its commitment to spiritual care, reaffirming the doctrine that baptism is essential, yet also touching upon God’s mercy for those who desire baptism but cannot receive it physically.
