Patrick Madrid

When Patrick Madrid told his family that he was converting to Roman Catholicism, he spoke with his mother and brother that night from 10:00 p.m. until 8:00 a.m. the next morning. While very difficult for them to accept at first, as a result of this and further discussions, his father, mother and two brothers would eventually make the same choice. One of his brothers even entered St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Philadelphia.

Writing in his book, Surprised by Truth, Mr. Madrid said: “The joy and peace that I now experience, the doctrinal certitude that I now possess, and the tremendous graces that are mine in the sacraments, especially in the Holy Eucharist, are riches far beyond anything I expected.”

Patrick Madrid has gone on to be a renowned Catholic speaker and apologist, and currently hosts a daily program, coast to coast, on Relevant Radio.
