Listener Comments and Reviews
Some good shows, mostly hosts that talk and not really say anything (Madrid, et al) So much is giving secular advise. There is no real preaching like on the other Christian stations. Those shows that teach Catholic theology seem very legalistic. Sometimes they contradict each other.

Does not have adequate signal to cover portions of San Diego. Very weak and full of static in the South Bay.

I'm a cradle Catholic and I have to agree with T.J. I have heard priests on different shows say different things and contradict each other. It is very hard to figure out what is the Catholic Church's official policies and teachings.

I wish this station would be more like the other Christian radio stations. What I mean by that is the other stations carry shows where the preachers have recorded their sermons. This is true teaching. Why can't the priests record their homilies and broadcast them, thus teaching the faith and maybe non-Catholics who listen might be converted. I have attended many Catholic Churches and the homilies are very boring and very non-informative. Many priest don't know how to preach. But there are some who are good preachers and teachers, they can use their homilies. All the priests say "don't listen to christian radio because their preaching is wrong." Well then why doesn't the Catholic church provide good teaching on it's radio stations? I use to listen to this station all the time, but as time goes on I listen less and less, because there is very little "spiritual substance" .

I am a retired priest from a diocese on the East coast. I was even bestowed the title "Monsignor" by Saint Pope John Paul II about 15 years ago. I moved to Southern California after I retired to be close to family . In my 50 years as an active priest I too became very frustrated with the Catholic Church. I can understand why the people who left comments about this station are frustrated and confused. The Roman Church is very specific in it's teaching and doctrines, refer to the Code of Cannon Law,the Rubrics, the Catechism, etc. Here is where the problem exists. Many lay people,the Deacons, Priests and even Bishops apply their own interpretation to these documents. These people interpret it to their own way of thinking or what they want it to be. Some are very conservative and others very liberal. Most Bishops are very busy and don't have the time to supervise all their clergy. They only act upon complaints. Most parishioners will not complain if they see a problem, so the Bishops are not aware of the problem. also many Bishops are reluctant to sanction their priests and deacons because they are short handed and are afraid of loosing them There are many Priest who believe in "same sex marriage" They are not allowed to perform that type of marriage in the church, however, their personal feelings say it's OK and go directly against the church and scripture. So some of the clergy do not believe in the Church's teaching. I only use this topic as an example, there are many other teachings that many priest don't believe in. That raises the question, HOW CAN YOU BE A PRIEST IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND WHO YOU REPRESENT?
Catholic radio programs are made up of of a mix of lay people and clergy who have differing opinions on the Church's teaching and doctrines. No wonder the listeners are confused. Also some of these radio hosts say the reason why there are so many Protestant denominations is because they all have their own interpretations of scripture. Well the Catholic church is no different. The only exception being the Catholics have one "denomination" (so to speak) but many different interpretations also. So my only advise would be is to stay true to Jesus and all his teachings and don't put all your faith in men and their individual interpretations. Be like the Bereans in Acts 17:10-12. They listened to the apostle Paul, but waited to believe until they could confirm with the scriptures that what he was saying was true. .

TELL PATRICK MADRID TO STOP CLEARING HIS THROAT ON THE AIR! ! ! IT IS VERY ANNOYING TO LISTEN TO AND HE DOES IT QUITE FREQUENTLY. WHEN I WORKED AT A RADIO STATION THE ON-AIR PERSON HAD A "COUGH BUTTON" HE COULD PUSH AND TEMPORARILY CUT OUT HIS MICROPHONE. IF HE DOESN'T HAVE A COUGH BUTTON HE NEEDS TO GET ONE. YOUR ENGINEER COULD INSTALL ONE IN LESS THAN 10 MINUTES.

I thought Patrick Madrid finally overcame his constant and most annoying habit of clearing his throat on the air. He had stopped for a while. Well this past week he is back to annoying all the listeners with his disgusting habit. I and several others had sent him E-mails directly to his web site at Immaculate Heart Radio. I guess he and Immaculate Heart Radio don't care.

When theres trouble in the church a true Saint would be at the front of the crowd as a leader and not be afraid of opposition from people or clergy within . That Saint would speak the truth and confront the devil and call him out at that very moment , god gave us a will to us good judgement well in the graces of the holy sprit . In my parish I am thankful to the good priest provided here in Encinitas . We also have a Divine Mercy Shrine site on Encinitas Blvd , north of Westlake St., I have found the faithful there in prayer every 13th of the month at 3pm there to pray the rosary and the Stations of the cross .( the Fatima Believers )
Look no further than the holy Eucharist and recognize The Blessed Mother .
My sincere regards to mankind , The Catholic Cowboy

This last week, Drew introduced a monsenor that was well prepared before hand, and spoke viamently against guns. There was no speaker that was prepared before hand to speak of the powerful legitament reasons to own, and if necessary, to rightfully use a gun. This was one sided politics, not an expression regarding the morality that could have been expressed as a Catholic theologin.
This makes me wonder if my monthly donation to Imaculate Heart Radio is supporting a political radio station, rather than a Catholic educational station!
By: Herbert Baker on November 28, 2018
Why is Drew expressing a great interest and concern in the attempt to impeach President Trump? He interviewed a staunch believer of a person who strongly advocated President Trump’s impeachment, but never interviewed a pro Trump supporter! This is a very controversial political issue. Drew is giving the impression that the Catholic Church is against President Trump. This misconception is wrong. I do not support Imaculate Heart Radio Station to be a political advocate!.

I would like you to bring Catholic Answers back to the afternoon slot (3-5 pm). I think it would help with support, I know I would provide support again.
