April 12 – June 11
The Joy of Love
Videos + Chat with Terry Modica
Explore the wisdom in Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation, Amoris laetitia (The Joy of Love) in this 9-week course. We will cover one chapter each week, unpacked in 3 short (5- or 6-minutes long) videos. This is an important book to read — especially in today’s world where secular and immoral beliefs about marriage and family have become louder than the truth.
Cost: As in everything else from Good News Ministries, there is no fee. We hope that you will prayerfully consider making a donation to help keep our ministry going and growing.
Hosted on SmartCatholics: Here you can join conversations with new friends and with Terry Modica on your schedule. Subscribe to our newsletter Insider’s View to find out when registration opens.

April 24 – June 6
Consecration to the Holy Spirit
Series of short videos
Become more sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s promptings! Wherever you are on your journey of faith, you can receive more from your personal relationship with the Third Person of the Holy Trinity than what you’re currently experiencing. By opening yourself to the truths that will be revealed in this 44-day CONSECRATION TO THE HOLY SPIRIT, your life will never be the same.
The event begins on April 24, 2021. Each day you will receive a prayer and a short video. You will learn how to hear the Holy Spirit and start living in the power of the Holy Spirit. Consecration day will be May 23, Pentecost. Afterward, we will continue in a Mystagogia Period for two weeks of learning how to pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, ending on June 4, the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.
May your spirit leap for joy as the Holy Spirit embraces you — because you actually feel it!

and Zoom Meeting with Terry Modica for a lively discussion
We all need supernatural help in difficult and challenging situations. So God provides to us helpers from heaven to assist us in our daily lives. In this event, Terry Modica shares true stories about getting help from angels and from saints in her own life. You will discover how you too can receive the same kind of help.

Live podcast interview
GNM’s co-Founder and Director Terry Modica had a lively discussion with Bill Snyder and Anne DeSantis on their Sewing Hope Podcast.
We exposed the secret agendas of satanists regarding families and the role of fatherhood — and our role in defeating evil. We discussed answering the call to do important work for the Kingdom of God and how this always turns out to be much better than we imagined. We’re all needed!
Sewing Hope is a podcast show on Patchwork Heart Radio. It offers an uplifting and interactive conversation about how faith sustains our hearts through all the seasons of our lives.
