The Patrick Madrid Show: May 01, 2024 – Hour 2

Patrick addresses a listener’s concern about whether venerating St. Jude’s relic could be considered sacrilegious, emphasizing the sacred respect and honor such acts convey in the Christian faith. He also explores a range of listener queries from the correct choice of Bible translations to the rich tapestry of the Old Testament, and the return of a caller to his Catholic roots. Amidst these personal and theological explorations, the conversation shifts towards more contentious terrain, as Patrick navigates the turbulent waters of political opinions tied to religious and moral viewpoints. The hour wraps up with a compelling clip of Ronald Reagan addressing the role of law, order, and freedom in society, offering insights into the historical echoes of today’s debates.
