The Patrick Madrid Show: May 07, 2024 – Hour 1

Patrick has a heart-to-heart discussion with Jorge, who is battling a pornography addiction. Patrick emphasizes the importance of ruthlessness in breaking free from sinful patterns, utilizing both modern tools like basic phones or anti-pornography software, and fostering spiritual strength by engaging in daily prayer and the sacraments. Patrick also touches on the power of accountability and recommends checking out resources like Catholic in Recovery to support Jorge’s path toward purity and chastity.
