The Patrick Madrid Show: July 03, 2024 – Hour 3

Patrick tackles an important question from a young listener, Luke, about whether Catholics can attend Protestant services and vice versa. He breaks down the historical and theological context, clarifies the differences between Catholic and Protestant worship, and emphasizes the significance of the Mass. Patrick also discusses the beauty of the traditional Latin Mass.


  • Luke (12-years-old) – Can a Catholic go to a Christian Church or vice versa? (00:36)
  • Ed – What is the difference between going to Saturday Vigil Mass and going to Sunday Mass? (09:25)
  • Phyllis – Communion in the hand seemed like something that was abused and never recommended. I think people struggle with this and other practices that crept in. (15:44)
  • Donna – My teenage daughter was going to Catholic school and was rebelling. She told me that she was going to kill herself. I took her to the hospital and the social workers were totally beating me up for making decisions about her well-being. (23:50)
  • Cynthia – Not all homeless are living the freewheeling, getting high lifestyle; Most of them have lost their ability to choose, because of their illness/addiction/disorder.  We don’t treat people with cancer like that. (36:47)
  • Lawrence – Is it okay to wear shorts to mass? (44:43)
  • Nick – The TLM community and Novus Ordo community could be a great relationship. (46:21)
