What do you think God the Father is really like? I guarantee he is much better as a Daddy who really cares about you – much better than you think he is. In this episode, I’ll share with you some key ways of really getting to know God the Father better, because he wants you to be intimate with him. He wants you to know him intimately.

When a disaster hits us, or when we witness destruction hitting the lives of other people, it’s normal to wonder: “Where is God? Why didn’t he prevent this?”

More than just the recitation of the Rosary, which you can join, it weaves an uplifting message through it. Each decade of the Rosary is lifted up for something important related to the message. It’s not just a prayer, it's life-changing!

The message is published as a WordBy...

Think of someone you know who’s rejecting Christ and Church, someone who likes taking selfies. “Who Do You Say I Am?” is an important new documentary about the Shroud of Turin. It shows scientifically and from the Catholic perspective why we can be sure that the Shroud of Turin is a selfie Jesus made of himself 1800 years before the invention of cameras.

In this podcast episode I explain how we can be sure that God the Father never gives up trying to turn unbelievers to Jesus their Savior. He never abandons anyone until the point of death when they make their final choice.

We can see this in Hebrews 4:12-16 (which tells us about the sword of the Spirit), in Job 36:5,8-12 (which reassures us, “He makes them listen to correction and commands them to repent of their evil,” and from S...

When I looked at 1 John 5:14, it shocked me: “We have this confidence in God that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And we know that if he hears us in regard to whatever we ask, then of course what we have asked for is ours.”

Do I still believe it? The year that I’ve just had (2022) was the worst year of my life. So I said, “Lord, I need to understand this verse better.”

That’s the challenge: To understand it ...

Do you know how much your Father God loves you? Really, really, really loves you? Usually we don’t know that, because we project onto God the way human fathers have been, the way authority figures have been, the human failings that we’ve witnessed. Do you think God is disapproving of your sins? Do you think he is accusing you? The truth might surprise you. To understand God the Father better, listen to this episode.

Here is my personal story about how I met the Holy Spirit. As a child I knew Jesus Christ as my Savior and my Best Friend, but I knew nothing about the Holy Spirit. I found out the hard way that there is a very important reason why Jesus sent us the Holy Spirit, why he ascended to Heaven so that the Holy Spirit could come. The Holy Spirit protects us from being tricked by demons — and because I had no personal relationship with the...

Do you feel this way? The writer of Psalm 77 laments, "I pray to God and yet I still feel troubled. I keep watching: My eyes are watchful for the Lord to do something, to bring an end to this misery, to answer my prayers, to intervene. And I am troubled and cannot speak."

The next verse is key. This is the cure. This is the antidote for all this misery that the Psalmist just described: "I consider the days of old; the years long pa...

Who’s causing you to suffer because they have turned away from Christ and perhaps even from you and your family? Their rejection hurts and you feel the pain of knowing that their eternal soul is in danger. In Matthew 18:12-14, Jesus says that your Father in heaven is not willing that any of your lost loved ones should perish. Your prayers will be answered! In this episode, Terry Modica provides hope and ...

Lent is meant for growing in holiness by repenting of our sins, but many of us are reluctant to face our sins because we simply don't know that God the Father is cheering us on, like a Doting Daddy who sees the best in us. This Lent, take a journey that leads to a wonderfully close relationship with God the Father. Learn to see him as he really is. Know the joy that he feels for you.

When my husband Ralph and I went to the funeral of a neighbor who was a Jehovah’s Witness, the description of Heaven that we heard from the leader of the congregation was not one that we want to believe in. Ralph joins me in this episode to explain why and to give a much better description of the afterlife based on the teachings of the Catholic Faith and the Bible.

If you want to experience all that the Holy Spirit wants to do in you and through you, rather than live a mediocre faith, use the Penitential Rite during Mass as a spiritual exercise. We have given in to the ways of the world – believing lies that Satan wants us to believe – and this is stifling the Holy Spirit. In this episode, Terry Modica teaches spiritual exercises that strengthen what is weak so that you can become who you rea...
