Is Everything Up For Grabs?

This presentation is a practical, down-to-earth explanation of what moral relativism is (the notion that all beliefs are relative and there is no such thing as “objective” truth) and how to recognize its more subtle forms. Patrick exposes the seven fatal flaws of moral relativism, offers sample dialogues for speaking with moral relativists, and he explains how Catholics can respond to moral relativist arguments in a friendly yet effective way.

Why Be Catholic?

This talk is a charitable and respectful examination of a dozen key biblical and historical reasons for being Catholic. Includes a discussion of common reasons why Catholics leave the Church, why they return, and what lay Catholics can do to help people better understand the teachings of the Catholic Church from a biblical and historical standpoint.

Search and Rescue: How You Can Help People Come Home to the Church

Based on the popular book by the same title, this seminar explains ten crucial “dos and don’ts” for Catholics who want to share, explain, and defend their Catholic beliefs. With a generous helping of humorous anecdotes, biblical examples, and practical illustrations, this talk equips lay-Catholics with the tools they need to help their family, friends, and co-workers come into (or back into) the Catholic Church. Cardinal Edward Egan, Archbishop of New York, said: “How do you bring someone back to the Catholic Church? First you pray, then you follow Patrick Madrid’s advice in Search and Rescue.”

Open Forum Q & A

A free-wheeling, fast-paced question and answer session where any and all questions about the Catholic Church are welcomed! Bring your toughest questions!
