Footsteps to Heaven is brought to you by Good News Ministries of GNM.org.

Good News Ministries of Tampa Bay was founded in 1995 by Terry and Ralph Modica in the Diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida. Our staff and volunteer team serve from across the US and around the world. The Executive Director Terry Modica is an international speaker and author.

Terry Modica is executive director of Good News Ministries of Tampa Bay (http://gnm.org), which she founded with her husband Ralph in 1995 to help people grow closer to Christ, enter the embrace of the Father, and become evangelizers empowered by the Holy Spirit. Since 1999, Terry has been producing Good News Reflections on the daily readings of Catholic Mass. Her ministry has spread throughout the world.

She credits the Holy Spirit for bringing her into the Catholic faith in 1977. He gave her instant faith in the True Presence of Christ in the Eucharist when a friend explained the miracle to her. This rescued her from the occult.

Terry, who has been involved in a wide variety of parish and diocesan ministries, has a theology degree and pastoral certifications. A versatile speaker, she gives retreats and conference talks on the Holy Spirit, Difficult Relationships, the Rosary as Mystical Union with Christ In Daily Life, Healing the Wounds that Affect Our Intimacy with Abba, How to Use Virtual Reality in Ministry and other topics.

Author of Overcoming the Power of the Occult and Daily Prayers with the Saints, look for her other publications at Catholic Digital Resources (https://catholicdr.com).

Life’s a journey full of challenges. When we walk with Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit to the destination that God the Father designed for us, the results are better than we could ask for or imagine.

Footsteps to Heaven – Why I believe that THE WARNING is true

Episode #81: Do you know how to read the signs of the times? In this episode, Terry Modica shares how God has worked in her life to convince her that Jesus is coming soon with a “Warning” for non-believers and a Second Pentecost for the true followers of Christ. Her story begins in 2001 when the scandal of priests sexually molesting children first became public. At that time, Terry felt very strongly that God wants to purge the Church from all sorts of abuses. Since then, the world has become much darker and we are called by God to read the signs of the times as watchmen who have the responsibility of warning others, as commanded in Ezekiel 33:1-9. 

Bill Snyder joins this episode because he wants the audiences of his podcast show, Young Catholics Respond, to listen to the previous episode of Footsteps to Heaven, which goes in-depth about “The Warning” (https://gnm.org/paracletia/the-warning-and-other-prophecies/).

Footsteps to Heaven – “The Warning” and Other Prophecies

 Episode #80: Is Jesus coming soon with a warning and a great illumination, as the Blessed Mother foretold in many apparitions? Do today’s upheavals and rampant evil indicate that the prophecies about this are coming true? If so, how can we best prepare for it?

In seeking answers, this podcast starts with the prophetic warning of Saint Pope John Paul II. Next I share with you the prophecies of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the Blessed Mother in Garabandal (Spain), Fr. Michel Rodrigue, and St. Alphonsus de Liguori. And I summarize for you what I think the prophetic evidence is telling us, in the context of why faithful followers of Christ need not be frightened of the Warning.

Footsteps to Heaven – Revelation 3:16 – An important message from Jesus for today

Episode #78: I’d like to share with you the scripture from the book of Revelations that I think is probably the most important scripture for today’s times. It’s Revelations 3:16. And let’s look at it from the perspective of another 3:16 – John 3:16. “God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish, but might have eternal life.” Today the world is so full of evil doings that many people are perishing. Jesus has strong words for us about this in Revelation 3:16. Listening to this episode is extremely important right now.
