The Good News Reflections are brought to you by Good News Ministries of GNM.org.
Good News Ministries of Tampa Bay was founded in 1995 by Terry and Ralph Modica in the Diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida. Our staff and volunteer team serve from across the US and around the world. The Executive Director Terry Modica is an international speaker and author.
Author of the Good News Reflections, Terry Modica is executive director of Good News Ministries of Tampa Bay (http://gnm.org), which she founded with her husband Ralph in 1995 to help people grow closer to Christ, enter the embrace of the Father, and become evangelizers empowered by the Holy Spirit. Since 1999, Terry has been producing Good News Reflections on the daily readings of Catholic Mass. Her ministry has spread throughout the world.
She credits the Holy Spirit for bringing her into the Catholic faith in 1977. He gave her instant faith in the True Presence of Christ in the Eucharist when a friend explained the miracle to her. This rescued her from the occult.
Terry, who has been involved in a wide variety of parish and diocesan ministries, has a theology degree and pastoral certifications. A versatile speaker, she gives retreats and conference talks on the Holy Spirit, Difficult Relationships, the Rosary as Mystical Union with Christ In Daily Life, Healing the Wounds that Affect Our Intimacy with Abba, How to Use Virtual Reality in Ministry and other topics.
Author of Overcoming the Power of the Occult and Daily Prayers with the Saints, look for her other publications at Catholic Digital Resources (https://catholicdr.com).
From a fan named Bobby: "Too often Catholic pencil pushers use their hierarchy of intelligence, throwing out four syllable words, forcing the reader to open a dictionary, promoting self and not Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Other astute writers will quote from everything they have read and springboard into a verse or two from the Bible. What I like about GNM, you present the truth in a simple and non-compromising format that anyone can understand. Jesus taught on the level of the people who were listening."
