The Patrick Madrid Show: June 20, 2024 – Hour 2

Patrick delves into the polarizing reactions to “The Chosen.” He discusses how the show’s embellishments stir both appreciation for humanizing the apostles and concerns about distorting sacred narratives. Listener opinions vary from love for its relatability to caution about straying from biblical accuracy.


  • Will (email) – The defenders of The Chosen seem to be pushy (00:39)
  • Bob – I think The Chosen makes the bible more realistic and more personal (01:52)
  • George – Mary is the right age and Patrick sounds stupid for saying otherwise (05:17)
  • Katerina – I think they need to be more respectful of Jesus’ words. Also, I met a wonderful older man who was spiritual but not Catholic. Will he go to Heaven? (07:26)
  • Jim – Why do we use Deuteronomy for the 10 Commandments, but other churches use Exodus? (15:30)
  • Patrick shares some of the many emails coming in concerning The Chosen (21:49)
  • Allan (email) – Is it a sin to hang up on a spam caller
  • Maria – Catholic Teaching says that Mary would not age because she was free from sin and she would have been young and beautiful (34:36)
  • Julia – What purpose do you think that Jesus had for not healing the lady served? (40:15)
  • Sally – Can you give me resources for my son who is living with his girlfriend? (45:20)
  • Nicki – My nephew feels lost with religion and was asking me questions. My dad told him not to talk to me about religion and to go seek his answers somewhere else. What should I do? (47:24)
