Ralph Martin meeting with Pope Paul VI, 1973
IT is a powerful prophecy, given in the presence of Pope Paul VI, that resonates with the "sense of the faithful" in our days. In Episode 11 of Embracing Hope, Mark begins to examine sentence by sentence the prophecy given in Rome in 1975. To view the latest webcast, visit www.embracinghope.tv
Please read the important information below for all my readers…
It has always been my intent to make Embracing Hope TV as freely available as possible. However, the costs of delivering these webcasts through a dedicated server has not permitted us to do so—until now. The company we are working with has re-negotiated our contract making it possible for us to open the gates. This does not mean we no longer have any costs—far from it. In fact, this is a step backward for us in terms of covering our expenses since we will rely now entirely upon donations. More than ever, we are in need of your help to continue this ministry. This webcast is the only means of income, along with book and CD sales, that supports this ministry and my family. It is a big step of faith for us, but my wife and I feel it is the right step. The days are short; the message even more urgent. We’re doing what we can to utilize new technologies, as the Holy Father has asked us, and still make ends meet… a difficult task for a family of ten.
We will change from a subscription-based service within the next couple weeks. For those who have made a yearly subscription, and those who donate the equivalent or more of an annual subscription ($75), we are going to offer a special coupon to give you 50% off of everything in our store—my books, CD’s etc . It’s our way of thanking you for your long-term support.
If any of our subscribers are not happy with this new arrangement, which allows us to bring the Gospel to a broader audience, we will arrange a refund for you. However, you will certainly help our ministry by considering your current subscription as a donation.
We have also set up our system to be able to withdraw automatic donations from your account on a monthly basis. This is a way for you to easily tithe to our ministry hassle-free. Please pray about becoming a partner with our ministry in this way.
Finally, I don’t think I need to convince those of you who are regular readers and viewers of the importance and urgency of the message to "prepare". It is critical that our ministry find someone who is able to inject some substantial funds into our efforts. There are many things in which one can invest his or her money today—but there is no greater investment than in souls. I have included below a few of the letters that I receive on a regular basis to share with you the work that God is doing.
Please prayerfully consider what you can do to help us continue this ministry. God bless you!
I am a professed Third Order Carmelite living as a hermit, offering my life for the sanctification of priests and consecrated souls. … First of all, I want to thank you for your reflections. Without exception, each reflection is truly spiritual nourishment for hungry souls… I’m not a theologian but certainly informed in Catholic theology with both a Bacholar’s and Master’s in Theology… Your communication of our holy faith is 100% solid truth in conformity to Church faith and tradition.Your knowledge of Sacred Scripture is awesome and communicates that His Word has taken root in your heart and lived with great zeal. For all this, I thank you… —A.O. USA
Thank God that He has put you on my path… At one point, last year, I started reading your blog and I became suspicious and wary about what you were writing on eschatology and private revelations and I even shared this with my spiritual director… but he spoke highly of you, which encouraged me to read further and deeper your blogs and even order your book and get a yearly subscription to your special videocast. Because of the proliferation of self-professed prophets and seers, from all churches and outside, I am highly cautious about this phenomenon which is certainly not novel in the history of the Church. I have taught Church history and also the Church Fathers, so I know that this is nothing new. But I am also careful to heed the words of Paul: “Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise the words of prophets, but test everything; hold fast to what is good” (1Thess. 5:19-21). I am now eager to read your blogs and watch your videocast as I have started also to enjoy reading your book. I am more and more at peace and at ease with the prayerful meditations that you share with us on your blog and your videocast… —Fr. G., Canada
You are such a blessing to all who read your inspired words. I believe God is using you in a powerful way to touch many hearts. I know you have touched mine. —J.G. Virginia, USA
…your writings call out to something deep within me – I feel that the truth of heaven is being transmitted in what you write. It often feels "lonely" since very few people my age have any concept about what you write about, but I pray that my knowledge of these topics can be shared with my friends and peers, if God wants me to share! I hope that my small donation will help your ministry grow… —D.H. New Hampshire, USA
I was researching information on Marian apparitions and discovere
d his blog. It immediately struck me as authentic, devout, and honorable to what God wants to teach us. The site was also so well-researched and well-written filled with much encouragement. I now absolutely look forward to every update that I see in my "new mail" box. —B.H. Georgia, USA
I have listened to "Through Her Eyes" almost every day since I received it. I love it. I have always had trouble saying the rosary, now I can say it along with you. I can play your CD while preparing for work or while traveling in my car. What a blessing! I began saying the "Chaplet of Mercy" daily which lead me to your website. I have felt lead to pray the rosary daily lately too. Your CD is perfect. I have enjoyed it so much I wanted to hear more of your songs so I am ordering your first CD today and your book. I feel that your music will help many people grow closer to the Lord. —P.B. Ohio, USA
Thank you for doing God’s will and I hope that my small donation will help you to do so. You answered a lot of questions I had and clarified the confusion about the times we live in. God bless you and your family! —S.P. Quebec, Canada
Thank you Mark for a clearer explanation of the tragedies and calamities that have been occurring throughout the world in recent times. Stay with us Mark, as your are a guiding light for us who are in he dark and much weaker in our faith. —G.M. USA
