The Patrick Madrid Show: June 14, 2024 – Hour 2

Patrick explores the complexities of annulments and divorce, the role of the catechism in clarifying Church teachings, and why certain angels and biblical figures are called saints. He also addresses the validity of confessions and the importance of penance.


Patrick continues his conversation with Ruby from the end the last hour – If your marriage is annulled and then you get married again but not in the church can you still take communion? (00:56)

  • Connor – I’ve heard that some of the church fathers have said that divorce is acceptable. Can I get some clarification on this? (07:00)
  • Diane – I’ve heard that you aren’t supposed to bring artifacts into your house. What about Indian pottery? (16:45)
  • Nick – If one priest is alright with you taking communion after getting remarried but another one isn’t, who do you listen to? (19:19)
  • Holly – What is a “Saint” and why do we call some people saints but not others (especially people in the Old Testament) (24:49)
  • Paola – If we get an action instead of a prayer as our penance, is that confession valid? Are priests allowed to do that? (29:47)
  • Patrick shares the latest news about IVF
