The Patrick Madrid Show: May 06, 2024 – Hour 2

Patrick unpacks the confusion surrounding Psalm numbers in different Bible versions, highlighting the difference between the Douay-Reims and newer translations. He also explores misconceptions about biblical sinlessness and tackles misconceptions around the inclusion of certain texts in historical Bible editions. Plus, he emphasizes how personal biases can shape our spiritual interpretive lens, reminding us of the timeless truth that what we seek influences what we find.


  • Mike – I just read a great book by Mother Antonia who had an order of sisters in Mexico. Can you recommend some books written by Doctors of Church?
  • Rose – My Dewey Rheims version of the bible says something different from what you said about Psalm 53:6. What version of the Bible did you use? (13:10)
  • Steve – I think your statement of ‘a man hears what he wants to hear’ is something that we have all fallen into about believing what we want to believe.
  • Michael – Sometimes the priest will give me a penance that includes a charitable act of kindness in a social event. Should I not go to communion until I do the service act? Also, I can’t wear the scapular around my neck for safety reasons. Is it valid if I just keep it in my pocket? (30:26)
  • Alisha – How do we pick good godparents for the baptism of our Son? (44:30)
