The Patrick Madrid Show: May 14, 2024 – Hour 1

Patrick clarifies misconceptions about receiving communion in a state of mortal sin and emphasizes the vital role of sacramental confession before partaking in the Eucharist. Patrick also explores how to approach family members who may be unknowingly disrespecting church teachings.
