Footsteps to Heaven – Strengthen Your Spirit for the Journey

February 4, 2020

Episode #60: On our journey to heaven, we need to strengthen our spirits so we can do our very best to receive the very best that God wants to give to us. This means choosing to be fully on the side of Jesus, not being lukewarm Christians who mix the ways of the world with the ways of Christ. In this episode, Terry Modica uses scriptures to explain the big difference that happens when we are hot for the Lord, living in the fire of the Holy Spirit, working hard to become the saints that God the Father created us to be.

Footsteps to Heaven - The Gift God Gives Everyone for Healing and Renewal

Footsteps to Heaven - The Gift God Gives Everyone for Healing and Renewal

January 28, 2020

Episode #59: Stressed out? Tired? Suffering from troubles? Jesus said (Mark 2:27), “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” Sabbath rest is a gift from God for our healing and renewal. It’s so vital to our well-being that God commanded it. To keep the day sacred, we need to do more than go to church. We need to make ourselves fully available to God so he can minister to us. Why does the story of creation in Genesis say God rested on the 7th day? Not because he was tired! God doesn’t need to rest. But we sure do. Terry Modica reveals why obeying this commandment is a gift from the Lord. She also explains why our day of rest is Sunday and not the Hebrew tradition of Saturday.

Footsteps to Heaven - How the Light of Christ Always Conquers Darkness

Footsteps to Heaven - How the Light of Christ Always Conquers Darkness

January 21, 2020

Episode #58: What are you concerned about because darkness seems to have taken over? Whatever it is you’re worried about, there is darkness there. But John 1:5 assures us that "Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness does not overcome it." The Light of Christ is always victorious. Jesus came so that we could learn from him and receive from him through his Holy Spirit the same light he has so we can live as victors over every problem and so that we can conquer the devil. Darkness is weaker than light! And during the dark times, God is preparing us for what he wants us to do in the light.

Footsteps to Heaven - Heroic Priesthood in Today’s World

Footsteps to Heaven - Heroic Priesthood in Today’s World

January 15, 2020

Episode #57: Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and Cardinal Robert Sarah have co-authored a new book entitled, “From the Depths of Our Hearts”. Ignatius Press editor Father Joseph Fessio in a press release said that book is about, “as Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI describes it in his first paragraph: ‘the lasting crisis that the priesthood has been going through for many years.’ But it is about more than that; it is about the nature of the Church and of Christian discipleship. This is a book that all should read. It is powerful and personal – from the depths of their hearts.”

Terry Modica shares snippets from this book and puts it into the context of what a Good Shepherd is. She helps listeners understand why Benedict XVI and Cardinal Sarah insist that celibacy is essential in the life and ministry of priests. This type of priesthood – the heroic priesthood – is necessary in today’s world, and anything less than that is an abomination of Holy Orders because it harms people’s salvation.

Footsteps to Heaven - Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary with Consecration to Christ

Footsteps to Heaven – An Advent Novena

Footsteps to Heaven – An Advent Novena

December 12, 2019

Episode #54: In this special episode, Terry Modica interviews Bill Snyder, author of a book of Advent meditations, called A Contemplative Las Posadas, based on the novenario that's celebrated in Hispanic cultures. Las Posadas is Spanish for lodging, which in this case refers to the inn in the story of the nativity of Jesus. Traditionally, people go from house to house asking for lodging, re-enacting Mary and Joseph's search for lodging in Bethlehem. They begin on December 16th at dusk, dressed up as angels and shepherds. Two are dressed as Mary and Joseph. Finally, on December 24th, they are welcomed into the house and everyone celebrates. Bill has turned this into a novena of reflections on the nine themes of Las Posadas. His book can be used in private meditation or it can be used by groups who take it from house to house or on a pilgrimage within the church, like the Stations of the Cross.

To get your copy of the book, go to patchworkheart.ecwid.com/A-Contemplative-Las-Posadas-p143956207 or order it from Amazon at https://smile.amazon.com/Contemplative-Las-Posadas-Bill-Snyder-ebook/dp/B07VP76M9Z/.

Footsteps to Heaven – 3 Weapons for Ousting the Devil from the Church

Footsteps to Heaven – 3 Weapons for Ousting the Devil from the Church

November 22, 2019

Episode #53: A new report has come out exposing more clergy corruption. It reveals that Church review boards have a long history of protecting clergy instead of their victims. Should we feel discouraged? No! Jesus is exposing more and more in his holy light because he is calling us to stand strong against the Enemy. Ephesians 6:12 tells us that our struggle is not truly against abusive clergy and the bishops who fail to protect their flocks but against the Devil. In this episode, Terry Modica explains three weapons that God is calling us to use for defeating the demonic strategies that have been trying to destroy the Church from within.

Episode #52: When your prayers are not answered, the Devil says, "God has abandoned you." God is saying: "Keep praying, pray with persistence, and use this time to lean on Me harder." It's a faith-builder. God will move mountains for you, but he wants you to put him first before everything else. He wants you to spend more time with him.

Footsteps to Heaven - The Apostolate of the Laity in the Church Crisis - Rosary Walkathon

Footsteps to Heaven - The Apostolate of the Laity in the Church Crisis - Rosary Walkathon

November 6, 2019

Episode #50:  All forms of abuses are evil and inspired by demons. The Blessed Mother has said many, many times in apparitions around the world that we must pray the Rosary for the defeat of evil. She’s warned us again and again that if we don’t live holy lives and pray for the defeat of evil, terrible things will happen, very terrible. In this final episode in the series on the Apostolate of the Laity, Terry Modica invites you to the Apostolate of the Rosary Walkathon, which is based on her personal experience doing a Rosary Walkathon to help a parish that was suffering from an abusive priest in 2003-2004. It was very effective, which is not surprising because abusiveness is evil and the Blessed Mother has said many, many times in apparitions around the world that we must pray the Rosary for the defeat of evil. She's warned us again and again that if we don't live holy lives and pray for the defeat of evil, terrible things will happen, very terrible.

Footsteps to Heaven - The Apostolate of the Laity in the Church Crisis - Part 4

November 6, 2019

Episode #49:  Here's what you can do to drive evil from the Church and help restore it to the true Holy Catholic Church. God is purging the Church and he wants you to be part of his plan! 

The Decree on the Apostolate of the Laity says (para. 7): "The whole Church must work vigorously in order that men may become capable of rectifying the distortion of the temporal order and directing it to God through Christ." This includes the distortions in the Church that have been undermining people's faith.

Canon Law #212 says in paragraph 3 that we, Christ’s faithful, “have the right, indeed at times the duty, in keeping with their knowledge, competence and position, to manifest to the sacred Pastors their views on matters which concern the good of the Church. They have the right also to make their views known to others of Christ’s faithful, but in doing so they must always respect the integrity of faith and morals, show due reverence to the Pastors and take into account both the common good and the dignity of individuals.” 

Jesus says, "Enough is enough!" It is time we speak up. But what if the hierarchy doesn't listen? Terry Modica proposes in this episode a Rosary Walkathon based on an experience from her own life.

Footsteps to Heaven - The Apostolate of the Laity in the Church Crisis - Part 3

Footsteps to Heaven - The Apostolate of the Laity in the Church Crisis - Part 3

October 30, 2019

Episode #48: It was a prophetic message, given in the 1960s -- more true today than when it was originally written. In Chapter 2 of "The Decree on the Apostolate of the Laity" from Vatican Council II, it says, "Since in our own times new problems are arising and very serious errors are circulating which undermine the foundations of religion" (so obvious now in the Church), "the moral order" (increasing the immorality of so many priests), and human society itself..." the lay faithful have a very important apostolate of renewing the Church from within.

Many people have asked me down through the years what does Jesus want them to do about the sins they witness in priests. Part 3 in this series answers that question.

Footsteps to Heaven - Jesus vs. Demons in the Vatican

Footsteps to Heaven - Jesus vs. Demons in the Vatican

October 29, 2019

Episode #47: Jesus is shedding his holy light on the demonic activities in the Church to expose it, because he’s saying, “Enough is enough! I’m about to do something that is going to change the Church from within because the Devil has been trying ruin the Church from within.”

A Brazilian bishop, Bishop Emeritus José Luis Azcona Hermoso, said in an Oct. 20 homily that Pope Francis’ Oct. 4 ceremony in the Vatican gardens prior to the opening of the Amazon Synod, where people prostrated themselves before pagan idols, was a “scandalous, demonic sacrilege.” He pointed out that a genuine illumination from the Holy Spirit is required: “We should distinguish between what comes from Satan or from the human mind, or from what is of the Holy Spirit. This discernment is fundamental in order to belong to the Church and even more so to evangelize.”

In this episode, Terry Modica reveals some surprising conclusions from his homily.

October 28, 2019

Episode #46: "In the Church there is a diversity of ministry but a oneness of mission.... The laity share in the priestly, prophetic, and royal office of Christ and therefore have their own share in the mission" -- which today includes purifying the Church from the evil infiltration of sin.

We are digging into Chapter 1 of The Decree on the Apostolate of the Laity from Vatican Council II to reveal God's plans for the lay faithful in today's world, especially in the problems that today's Catholics have with Pope Francis and corrupt bishops. We have a shared mission that depends on us for success!

Footsteps to Heaven - The Apostolate of the Laity in the Church Crisis - Part 1

October 24, 2019

Episode #45: I hear a lot of doubt about Pope Francis. But we need to remember that the Holy Spirit was involved in his election. God has given us the pope that we need right now. This pope's lack of clarity, which makes many wonder if he is compromising the truth, is being used by God to get our attention.

God wants us to rely on him for guidance, not on our priests, not even on our pope. We are in the Age of the Holy Spirit, which began when Jesus sent the Holy Spirit on Pentecost. The Holy Spirit makes very clear what the truth is – through Scripture and through the Church documents that have accumulated since the first Apostles. But we have not been learning the Church documents. So now we need to do some catching up. God is using the papacy of Pope Francis to get us all fired up so that he can set us loose upon the world -- a world that the devil has infected so thoroughly that our mission has become extremely important.

This is Part 1 of a series on what the Decree on the Apostolate of the Laity, from Vatican Council II, reveals about God’s plans to work through the lay faithful in the purification and healing of our Church.

October 21, 2019

Episode #44: When the sex abuse scandals first came to light two decades ago and the bishops met and made some policies to protect minors, I predicted that God was not finished purging the Church of abusive clergy. The bishops did too little. There are other kinds of abuses and all are terribly sinful. In this episode, I share how I’ve dealt with abusive priests. While this exposes more about the crisis of sin, it also shows the power of prayer for stopping abuses. By asking, “What is God doing in the Church Crisis?” we find the divine purpose that each of us are called to embrace.

October 17, 2019

Episode #43: When a crisis happens and there seems to be no solution, or when a problem brings darkness and there seems no way out, God has a plan. Jesus as our Redeemer always wants to redeem bad things that happen, turning them into blessings. To find God’s help, we need to trust him. Proverbs 3:5 instructs us to trust him instead of leaning on our own understanding of the situation. Terry Modica explains how to do it by sharing her own recent experience as an example.
