Articles featuring Patrick
Stella, a delivery room nurse, asks Patrick if there can be an exception to the Church’s teaching that abortion is wrong if it’s in the case of a child who is raped or a victim of sex trafficking, or a pregnant woman whose life is in danger if the baby is not aborted. Patrick walks her gently through the details surrounding these scenarios, and she has a conversion of the heart, after which she is convinced that abortion is always wrong.
Patty, calling to support Stella, shares when she had her first baby when she was a teenager. She had no money and even her mom was pressuring her to have an abortion. She chose life, and now her son is married and his wife is expecting her grandchild!
Patrick shares the true story of the time his guardian angel helped him “smuggle” books into a foreign country.
Commenting on the recent news that Paul McCartney explained that it was not he but John Lennon who broke up the Beatles, Patrick discusses Lennon‘s tragic killing on December 8, 1980. The “God door” here, he explains, is how Lennon‘s murder brought home to him for the very first time the reality of the gospel message that no matter how rich or famous someone is in this world, none of that goes with him and that everybody will have to eventually give an account of his life and go either to heaven or hell.
Patrick reports about people spending real-world money on virtual clothing in a virtual-world, and comments on the fast approaching reality that many people will be addicted to spending all of their time in VR.
Ted tells Patrick that he’s guilty of verbally abusing his wife and asks for advice. Anna calls in with a similar situation as Ted and shares how the Catholic Church helped her and was the good influence her daughter needed.
Katie, a young wife and mom, asks Patrick for advice on how to deal with her desire to become a Catholic even though her husband, who is verbally and emotionally abusive to her, strongly opposes this.
