Weekly Message

In this week's video, Ralph announces his latest book: a memoir entitled "A Life in the Spirit", and pre-sales begin today! Orders placed through Renewal Ministries before September 1 will receive a SIGNED copy and special pre-sale bonuses! To reserve your copy, visit https://www.renewalministries.net/RalphMemoir.

This book chronicles Ralph's journey from the beginning of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal to becoming one of the most courageous voices defending the truth of the Gospel during an age of dissension and disbelief. It recounts Ralph’s first radical commitment to Christ, obstacles and opposition he faced, remarkable experiences with St. John Paul II and others, and more.

“Ralph Martin’s teachings have had a profound impact on my life and my thought. The Church has a lot to be grateful for in the way that Martin has consistently and passionately presented the Faith for so many years. Not only has his teaching been intellectually powerful, but the moral authority with which he teaches is born of a life of integrity and transformation by the Spirit. It is a gift to read more about his life and ministry. A Life in the Spirit provides an insight into Martin’s life, but even more into the way God can work in the life of someone so fully surrendered to the will of God.”
--Fr. Mike Schmitz, host of The Bible in a Year podcast

“A remarkable account of an ordinary life that became extraordinary by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and a radical, ongoing personal yes to the Spirit’s leadings. Ralph Martin is known worldwide for his many decades of deep commitment to the truth of the Gospel. Like Augustine’s Confessions, this memoir gives us a glimpse into his inner life in a spirit of humble amazement at the grace and mercy of God.”
--Mary Healy, biblical scholar & professor at Sacred Heart Major Seminary 

"Ralph Martin’s A Life in the Spirit stretches far beyond a memoir in its fascinating appeal. He captures so very well in his fast-paced account the turbulence of the post-Vatican period, the spiritual excitement of a deeper discovery of God in the charismatic movement, and the riches of a contemplative spirituality influenced by the great Carmelite saints. He is a master teacher for our time, and this book is a wonderful entry into a greater knowledge of this prayerful man of God and his contribution to the Church in our day."
--Fr. Donald Haggerty, author of "Conversion: Spiritual Insights into an Essential Encounter with God"

“A Life in the Spirit is a fascinating portrait of a faithful servant of Jesus Christ. Dr. Martin has lived a life guided by the Spirit and has done much to draw people into Christ’s redeeming love. I recommend this memorable and encouraging memoir!”
--Curtis Martin, founder and president of the Fellowship of Catholic University Students

“A Life in the Spirit is an engaging read spanning decades and traversing continents, but even more so, it brings the reader through the familiar yet foreign terrain of the interior life of another’s soul. This is a love story of simple but profound proportions, presented with the humility that comes with a long life, lived seeking to fulfill the Lord’s will. It is practical, edifying, and quietly moving—a deep and eminently worthwhile read.” 
--Noelle Mering, author of "Awake, Not Woke" & coauthor of the "Theology of Home" book series

“This sincere and humble memoir reads like an omnibus on the unwav¬ering manner in which a man infused by the Spirit does his best to serve God for the entirety of his life. As you read, you might see Martin emerge as I did: as one on fire to serve God and willing to suffer, endure perse¬cution and lonely nights, to travel the world to proclaim Christ—not unlike St Paul. When Martin was flooded by the furnace of God’s love and light in the 1960s, he could not have known that that same love and light would move into numberless millions of souls because of his holy, apostolic, and prophetic work.”
--Kevin Wells, speaker & author of "The Hermit: The Priest Who Saved a Soul, a Marriage, and a Family"

“This fascinating memoir moved me to tears several times as Ralph witnessed to the miraculous and divine power of the Holy Spirit at work in his life and the life of the Church. His personal stories not only model faithfulness to Jesus and the proclamation of truth but are an inspiration to open one’s own heart to the power of the Holy Spirit and abandonment to divine providence.” 
--Heather Khym, author & cohost of the Abiding Together podcast

“Few have had the unique vantage point of Ralph Martin. He has wit¬nessed crisis, upheaval, and radical renewal in the life of the Church over many decades. He has worked beside some of the Church’s brightest lights. To understand his story is to understand the powerful movement of the Holy Spirit in these times.”
--Scott Hahn, founder & president of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology
