Join author, speaker, and world-wide renewal leader, Dr. Ralph Martin, as he shares what the Holy Spirit is stirring up in the Church right now: words of encouragement from the Lord to strengthen you for such a time as this.
022 :: The Activity of the Antichrist
In this episode, Ralph points out that high ranking leaders in the Church are beginning to speak about the antichrist and are acknowledging the fears beginning to grow among God’s people, as they see what is happening in society and in the Church. Ralph looks at what these leaders are saying, what the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches about the antichrist, and how we can live confident in the power of God’s love and free of fear in challenging times such as these.

021 :: Don't Waste Your Suffering (and Don't Be Too Afraid of It)
This week, Ralph reminds us of some of the great wisdom of St. Francis de Sales concerning suffering, and some of the amazing revelations of the power of suffering to bring about conversion contained in the messages of the angel and Mary at Fatima, and the powerful words of Jesus not to fear those who can kill the body, and the confidence we should have in the Father’s personal, detailed, love of us.
020 :: Young People: Choose the Greatest Treasure Now
"Meditate on the shortness of life and learn wisdom of heart."
This week Ralph comments on a few scriptures that urge young people to choose the Lord while they are still young and not be allured by what may be a false hope that there will be an opportunity later.
Scriptures in this episode:
Ecclesiastes 11:9 - 12:8
019 :: A World in Danger: Fatima's Urgent Message
In this episode, Ralph speaks on the startling messages of the Blessed Virgin Mary to three young children at Fatima, Portugal in 1917, and how relevant and important it is for us today.
018 :: Fulfillment of All Desire Advent Mission | Night 4: Basic Stability
In our final night of the Advent Mission, we continued to delve into the wisdom of the saints, who are great spiritual masters of the interior life. We will pick up our study of The Fulfillment of All Desire again in Lent; we hope you will join us!
Among many rich topics, in night four Ralph looks at a principle of the Christian life rooted in Acts 14:22 - “Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.” No one escapes suffering; we are all called to take up our cross and follow Christ. We all have to choose between the cross of Christ and the cross of Satan.
017 :: Fulfillment of All Desire Advent Mission | Night 3: Initial Challenges
Last night was night three of the Advent Mission. It was a joy to continue our Advent journey and to look closely at the challenges we can face on the path to holiness, particularly the dangers of sin.
