The Patrick Madrid Show: April 30, 2024 – Hour 2

Patrick tackles whether humanity would be assured heaven if Adam and Eve hadn’t sinned, with insights drawn from St. Thomas Aquinas, highlighting the loss of supernatural gifts due to original sin and the individual moral journeys we each would face.
