We are truly missionaries. And those who help us cover the costs of doing this work are missionaries with us. Some of those countries are unable to make donations, and it’s such a huge blessing for Good News Ministries to be such a popular online ministry to rely on! (If you’re not a missionary with us yet, or if it’s been a while, please visit today.

And here’s another important fact: Almost everyone accesses our resources on their phone, not a computer or tablet. My oh my, how much websites have changed since I coded GNM’s first site in 1996!

In studying the statistics of how our websites are used, I discovered that they were over-due for a new layout — one that’s optimized for phones.

While updating our sites, I made the GNM home page a daily- and weekly-updated go-to page for the faith-builders that will inspire you most. Rediscover again today.

Have you seen our new tag-line (ministry slogan)? It’s:


Increase devotion to Jesus in the Eucharist

Terry Modica's book: My Soul Shall Be HealedDo you belong to a prayer group, a book club, or small Christian community? Or maybe you’d like to invite some friends over to start a group to help them fall in love with Jesus in the Eucharist.

The US Bishops, in keeping with the global effort of the Church to increase devotion to the Holy Eucharist, have said that it’s time “to present a clear understanding of the Church’s teachings to bring heightened awareness among the faithful of how the Eucharist can transform our lives and bring us closer to our creator and the life he wants for us.” My book, My Soul Shall be Healed, fulfills that calling.

I wrote this book in 2021 to enable readers — especially in study groups — to enter more fully into the mystery of the Eucharist and deepen their intimacy with Christ while enriching their celebration of Holy Mass.

My Soul Shall Be Healed explains in ordinary language how to understand Ecclesia de Eucharistia. You’ll be able to apply it to your every-day life in today’s world. You’ll discover how to develop a more personal relationship with Jesus in the Eucharist. You’ll learn why Catholicism teaches that the Eucharist is the “source and summit of the Christian life.” You’ll find out — with clarity — what Catholics believe and do not believe about the Eucharist. And (this might surprise you) you’ll gain a deep appreciation for the reason why only Catholic priests can consecrate the communion elements alongside the important role you have, with the whole community, in the Eucharistic celebration.

Visit for the book as a PDF or paperback, a free download of Ecclesia de Eucharistia, a free PowerPoint set for use in study groups, and a video conversation with Joy and Patrick Campbell on Joyful Hope TV.
