Let me tell you a story….

I’ve been a Catholic evangelizer and spiritual leader for more than forty years. This calling came directly from the Holy Spirit. But I have a confession to make. In the beginning, I didn’t even know the Holy Spirit.

As a teenager, I sought out the supernatural by exploring the occult. My conversion away from the supernatural world of the occult to the supernatural kingdom of God occurred in Charismatic prayer meetings after Ralph and I married. There, I discovered the supernatural event of bread and wine turning into the Body and Blood of Jesus during Mass. My plan, however, was to hold onto my occult beliefs and become Catholic, merging the two and teaching others how to do it.

How naive!

Paracletia - How to Hear the Holy Spirit - Course Description - Learn to hear the Holy Spirit betterThanks be to God, once the Holy Spirit got a hold of me, the Spirit purified my thinking. One by one, all of my occult beliefs were revealed as counterfeits of a far greater supernatural life in Christ.

But this was only how it all started. Although my thoughts were being influenced by the Holy Spirit, I still didn’t know how to hear the Holy Spirit.

I watched others in the prayer group mention that God told them this or that, and I wondered: How do they do that? How do they know it was God? Sure, the fruits of it proved they were on the right track, but they seemed to have an ability to dialogue with God and actually hear him — an ability I wanted and didn’t know how to get.

This question directed the rest of my life. Now, I’d like to share with you what I’ve learned along the way.

Many people tell me that the daily Good News Reflections I write are as if I had been sitting in their living room observing what they’re struggling with and then had put into an email exactly what they needed to know. We both know it’s not me but the Holy Spirit who does that. I’m merely living out my calling, which would be totally ineffective and inadequate if not for the Holy Spirit.

You, too, can become that sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s promptings. You’re just as special to God as I am. Wherever you are on your journey of faith, you can have more from your personal relationship with the Third Person of the Holy Trinity than what you’re currently experiencing. I’m still improving in my own ability to hear the Holy Spirit. There’s always more!

I promise you: If you open yourself to the truths I’ll be sharing in this course, your life will never be the same again. Come, let the Holy Spirit get a hold of you like never before.

May your spirit leap for joy as the Holy Spirit embraces you — because you actually feel it!

P.S. The video on this page is one of the first videos I ever made for Good News Ministries (2010). Although its style and quality is not as professional as the videos I make today, it is by far the most popular one ever produced by Good News Ministries. Why? Because many people are like you — they want to know how to hear the Holy Spirit.

A Meditation on the Passion of Christ Through the Eyes of Peter and Judas

Written with a powerfully life-changing twist, this is not the usual Passion story. “Forgiven” shows the passion of Christ as seen through the eyes of Peter and Judas. Each react in different ways to the final days and crucifixion of Jesus. One chooses forgiveness and the other ends his life in terrible guilt.

The story ends with the reunion of Jesus and Peter after the resurrection when Jesus calls Peter to become the first leader of the Church.

This is a fictional account based on the true events of the Passion of Jesus Christ, for the purpose of meditation.

Each day of this novena contains a brief story about various apparitions of St. Joseph, with special prayers.

With this consecration, we seal ourselves as his children. We place into his fatherly protection ourselves, our families, our jobs and ministries, and the Church.
