Many years ago, Pope St. John Paul II said, "We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced...the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, between the gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the antichrist. The confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence. It is, therefore in God's Plan, and it must be a trial which the Church must take up, and face courageously..." In this booklet, Ralph Martin takes a look at what Scripture says about the final confrontation and the work of the Evil One. He exposes the lies of the enemy and the truth about Divine Mercy. He also identifies what we must do to face the present trials with courage.

Pentecost: Fire for Holiness & Mission
This three CD set or DVD contains the talks given at the 2014 Renewal Ministries Gathering. It includes: “Holiness: The Foundation of a Missionary Spirituality” by Ralph Martin, and “More the Holy Spirit” by Sr. Ann Shields, SGL.
Back by popular demand! Sr. Ann explores a topic many people fear and desperately try to avoid. Suffering, however, can be a tremendous gift and produce much fruit in a believer's life. Through the scriptures, the writings of John Paul II, the testimonies of saints, and personal stories, we see how suffering can bring us into greater intimacy with God.
St. Francis of Assisi is perhaps the most well-known and best-loved saint in the history of the Church. Regrettably, there is a common misperception that he rarely used words to preach the Gospel. Too often this leads people conclude that it is better not to use words.
In this booklet, Peter uses firsthand accounts to refute this myth and paint a true picture of Francis’ powerful preaching. Following the example of Jesus and the apostles, Francis used words. Peter concludes this important message with additional lessons we can learn from St. Francis for preaching the Gospel in our times.

In this video series, host Michael Hernon presents a look at the Church’s call to spread the Word of God through the methods of New Evangelization. With Dr. Ralph Martin and Dr. Scott Hahn, Hernon defines what it means to b e a modern day evangelist and how everyone can preach the message of eternal life with their everyday life.
Ralph has gathered together the major themes he has been speaking and writing about in recent years concerning the New Evangelization and the New Pentecost and put them into a comprehensive, easy to read book. He presents a simplified analysis of some of the more complex issues from his recent book Will Many Be Saved? and has added two chapters of previously unpublished material on what Jesus told us to tell people. Also included is a consideration of the message of Divine Mercy, including St. Faustina’s description of hell and the urgent need to pray for the salvation of souls.
Here is a new collection of short quotes and excerpts carefully gathered and compiled by Debra Herbeck, this time on the all-encompassing subject of love. Perfect for gift-giving or personal reflection, this treasury contains the writings of favorite saints and others. Enrich your soul with these meditations on love: God's love for us, our love for him, and our love for each other.
In the last forty years, many Catholics have experienced an outpouring of the Holy Spirit in their lives, resulting in a new passion for God and a zeal for spreading the gospel. Yet as the years go by, many often experience a waning of the gifts of the Spirit and a lukewarmness creeping into their lives. This book offers an inspirational message that will help us persist in prayer, re-dedicate ourselves as disciples of Christ, and ignite the fire that once burned within us.
