The Patrick Madrid Show: June 27, 2024 – Hour 2

Patrick addresses a common concern around the reintroduction of the chalice at Mass post-COVID. One listener shares her confusion on why it’s taking so long, and they discuss the heightened awareness of germ transmission since the pandemic. Patrick delves into the theological assurance that receiving either the host or the precious blood grants the fullness of Christ.
