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.

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.

Mystical Union with Christ in Daily Life – Episode 10

The Glorious Mysteries – Part 2: Blossoming in the Empowered Life. In the third Mystery, the Descent of the Holy Spirit, we are empowered by the Holy Spirit to accomplish whatever the Father calls us to do. In the Assumption of Mary, when we say “Yes” to the calling to bring Christ into the world, we are united to our Blessed Mother’s love, her fullness of grace, and her support. In Mary’s Crowning as our Queen, she is Queen of Heaven, we are her daughters (and sons), princesses (and princes) of the Most High God.

With the Eucharist as the source and summit of our faith, we can draw upon its strength to grow in healing, giftedness, and excellence in the mission of Christ, in a spirit of collaboration within community. We are empowered to continue the ministry of Christ utilizing our particular gifts and talents and our unique callings. We are empowered by the Holy Spirit to have a resurrected life full of new joys and victories.

Mystical Union with Christ in Daily Life – Episode 9

The Glorious Mysteries – Part 1: Blossoming in the Empowered Life. Are you ready to experience more joy to be a better minister? In the first Mystery, the Resurrection, our sufferings and dyings are transfigured into new life, new purposes, new ministries. In the Mystery of the Ascension, we reach higher states of forgiveness, love, determination, commitment, faithfulness, and willingness to spread the Good News. Jesus said, “If you believe in Me, you will do the works that I do, and greater ones than these” (John 14:12). How can this be true?

Mystical Union with Christ in Daily Life – Episode 8

The Sorrowful Mysteries – Part 2: Communion with Jesus means becoming Eucharist. In the Mystery of The Crucifixion, we are dying to our own desires as we prepare for resurrection. United to Jesus in his Passion, our sufferings become redemptive. St. Ignatius of Antioch said, “I am the wheat of Christ, ground by the teeth of beasts to become pure bread.” In our sufferings, we become Eucharist (the Bread of Christ), a sign of the true presence of Jesus in the world. But we need to rest to keep persevering.

Mystical Union with Christ in Daily Life – Episode 7

The Sorrowful Mysteries – Part 1: Communion with Jesus means becoming Eucharist. “Are you willing to suffer?” This is what Jesus asked Terry in a life-changing moment. In the first Mystery, the Agony in the Garden, this is our moment of decision to follow Christ all the way. In the Scourging, this is the pain we feel when our faith is rejected by those we want to help; some of our fruits that had started to grow are snipped off. In the Crowning of Thorns, our minds are attacked by doubts, fears, and false accusations; we look at the fruit dying on the ground and mourn. In Carrying the Cross, our burdens become light when yoked to Jesus; we know that a better fruit will grow.
