Footsteps to Heaven - Part 1 Rebuking the Devil

Footsteps to Heaven - Part 1 Rebuking the Devil

September 16, 2019

Episode #36: Using the book Rebuking the Devil by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops about Pope Francis’ teachings on defeating Satan, we first look at why there is so much evil in today’s world. Is the devil real? Many believe that evil is created by people making bad choices, and this leaves us vulnerable to being tricked by demons. Your host Terry Modica shares her story of how she was tricked into turning away from Christ by getting involved with the demons of the occult because she didn’t believe they existed.

The book can be ordered from the USCCB at http://store.usccb.org/rebuking-the-devil-p/7-608.htm or from Amazon at https://smile.amazon.com/Pope-Francis-Rebuking-Devil/dp/1601376081/ (please choose Good News Ministries of Tampa Bay for the charity your purchase supports at AmazonSmile).

Episode #34: This episode was inspired when Terry Modica and her husband, Ralph, went to the funeral of a neighbor who was a Jehovah’s Witness. The description of the afterlife that they heard from the leader of the congregation was not one that we want to believe in. Terry is joined by Ralph to explain why. Here’s a much better description of the afterlife based on the teachings of the Catholic Faith and the Bible.

Footsteps to Heaven - Intercessory prayer that really works

September 3, 2019

Episode #33: What if while driving down the road you say a prayer for every person that you see along the way. Surely they all need your prayers. Would you intercede for others more often and more readily if you saw your prayers get answered? In this episode, Terry Modica reveals that the real stumbling block is not a lack of fruits but a lack of understanding how intercessory prayer works. By clearing up misconceptions, you can discover greater faith to become a more effective intercessor.

Footsteps to Heaven - The Way of the Eucharist is Out the Door

Footsteps to Heaven - The Way of the Eucharist is Out the Door

August 6, 2019

Episode #28: Part 9 of "Going Deeper into Mass" - THE FINAL BLESSING 

What do you think is the high point of the Mass? What is the high point for you? Is it when you received forgiveness in the penitential rite? Is it when you received Jesus in the Eucharist? Or is it the final blessing of the Mass? Everything that happened during Mass is intended not only for our benefit but for the sake of others. In the final blessing, Jesus in the priest blesses us so that we can go out the door and be successful in continuing to live the life of Christ. Think of the Mass as a sort of wedding ceremony, like the renewal of wedding vows. Every Mass is a recommitment of our faithfulness to Christ and a renewal of our openness to his commitment to us. But like every wedding, the wedding day is not the most important day. More important is the marriage that follows.

This concludes the series on Going Deeper into Holy Mass. It will be available to parishes as part of a package for adult faith formation (including RCIA) and small group discussions. Find out more about this at http://gnm-media.org/take-eat-drink/

Episode #27: Part 8 of "Going Deeper into Mass" – THE EUCHARIST AND COMMUNION RITE 

In this episode, Terry Modica covers the apostolic succession that makes it possible for bread and wine to become the body and blood of Jesus, why Jesus called his blood the new and everlasting covenant, and the dialog we have with Jesus as we receive him. She also answers the question: Why do we pray for Jesus to come “under my roof” just before we receive him in the Eucharist?

Episode #26: Part 7 of "Going Deeper into Mass" – WHEN DOES THE BREAD AND WINE BECOME JESUS?

The Eucharist Prayers of the Mass bring us to the source and the summit of our faith. This is when we receive what we need to live the holy, make a difference in the world and experience the miracles that faith is supposed to provide for us. 

At what point during the Eucharist Prayers does the miracle of transubstantiation happen and the bread and wine supernaturally become Jesus? Or – is there just a moment in time? Terry Modica explains how it’s really like a pregnancy.

Footsteps to Heaven - The Offertory Miracle of Multiplication

July 25, 2019

Episode #25: Part 6 of "Going Deeper into Mass" - THE OFFERTORY

During the Offertory, we are offering back to God the gifts and blessings that he has given to us. In thanksgiving, we give God the gift of money to help the Church do the works of Jesus. We give the gift of the fruits of our labors. What has he given you? What are your personality traits, the good ones, which God designed you to have? These are gifts from the God – you were made in his image – and at this point in the Mass, now is the time to thank him for what makes you the wonderful you that you are. You can supernaturally place any of the giftedness of your life on the altar when the priest accepts (when Jesus accepts) the monetary collection. Now is the time to thank God for the blessings in your life by offering them back to him for his use. And thus the gifts are multiplied!

Footsteps to Heaven - The Creed of True Belief

July 23, 2019

Episode #24: Part 5 of "Going Deeper into Mass" - THE CREED 

When we proclaim our faith out loud, the devil hears us and knows he has been defeated. This is one reason why we recite the Creed during Mass and why it’s important to not be silent but to pay close attention to the words of the Creed and what they mean. Every line of the Creed conquers lies about who God really is -- God the Father, God the Savior Jesus Christ, and God the Holy Spirit – and also who we are as the Church. In this episode, Terry Modica describes the heresies that the Creed overcomes.

Episode #23: Part 4 of "Going Deeper into Mass" - THE LITURGY OF THE WORD 

It's important to really have an open mind and heart and to really listen to what God wants to say to us throughout the Holy Mass. He speaks most clearly during the Liturgy of the Word. It’s meant to change us! And it’s meant to empower us to go out from church and change the world. This is why the ministry of reading the Word of God – and cantoring the psalms -- is the work of evangelization.

Footsteps to Heaven - The Soul-lifting Gloria

July 16, 2019

Episode #22: Part 3 of "Going Deeper into Mass" - THE GLORIA 

The timing of the Gloria during the Catholic Mass is important. It comes immediately after the Penitential Rite for a reason. We sing our praises to God after we've opened ourselves to the healing of our souls. Having received forgiveness, we want to sing praises to God and give him our gratefulness. We are grateful that Jesus died on the cross for us to take away the sins that we thought about during the Penitential Rite. We sing “Glory!” because we are excited that we have been set free from the enslavement of sins. In a spirit of thanksgiving, we sing or pray the Gloria together – the priest and laity together as one body. This is when we begin to really enter into celebrating the glory of God. The Gloria is meant to inspire awe.

Footsteps to Heaven - The Unifying Gift of the Penitential Rite

July 11, 2019

Episode #21: Part 2 of "Going Deeper into Mass" - THE PENITENTIAL RITE 

The Catholic Mass is a celebration of our union with God the Father, God the Son our Savior, and God the Holy Spirit who empowers us to become the saints God designed us to be, the saints Jesus suffered and died for us to become. Because Jesus is present in the community, we need forgiveness for the unloving things that we have done to each other – and “each other” means anyone at all, anywhere – all children of God. Therefore our sins, because they divide us from God and from each other, must first be absolved prior to receiving the Eucharist. 

The Sacrament of Reconciliation and the Penitential Rite restore our unity with God and with the Church – with each other – so that we can receive the Eucharist rightly. In other words, so that we can be mystically and fully united to Christ and all that he offers us – all the love of the Father, all the help and all the guidance of the Holy Spirit, all the miracles that Jesus promised when he said in John 15:7, “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”

July 9, 2019

Episode #20: Part 1 of "Going Deeper into Mass" - THE BEGINNING 

How personal is your relationship with Jesus during Mass? The entire Catholic Mass is an encounter with the True Presence of Christ, and it should change us: We should be healed by it. We should feel loved and become more fully loving as a result of it. Our hearts should become more peaceful. Our tendencies to sin should be transformed into greater strength to resist sin. A true encounter with Christ makes a difference. This is what Mass is designed to do. 

Mass begins with a gathering song and procession. This is as important as any other part of the Mass and should never be missed. Here's why! Jesus begins to reveal himself. Here's how!

Footsteps to Heaven – Will I Be Persecuted For This Episode?

June 25, 2019

Episode #18: A frank and honest look at what happens when priests do not have an active and alive, personal relationship with the Holy Spirit. When it causes suffering and drives people away from the Church and from Christ, it is "diabolical" (quoting from Bishop Robert Barron's "Letter to a Suffering Church"). It shows up in homilies that preach heresies, in nit-picking without compassion about the norms for Mass, for example, the "right" way* to receive the Eucharist, and in abuses that, because they are not victimizing children, remain covered up and undealt with.

*This episode includes what the General Instruction on the Roman Missal actually says and means about the "right" way. For more information, see Terry Modica’s article "The correct posture at Mass: Can we genuflect when receiving Communion?" at http://wordbytes.org/faqs/posture-communion/
