The Patrick Madrid Show: June 21, 2024 – Hour 2

Patrick takes on theological questions on the authority of the Catholic priesthood and the nuances that differentiate it from other denominations. He explores whether a Lutheran minister could perform the miracle of transubstantiation and the legitimacy of exorcism by those outside the Catholic faith. Patrick clarifies complex scriptural passages and addresses the importance of valid ordination within the sacraments, drawing insights from the early Church Fathers.
