Ralph Martin has been a leader in renewal movements in the Catholic Church for many years. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame, he did graduate work in philosophy at Princeton University and holds an MA in Theology, from Sacred Heart School of Theology in the Archdiocese of Detroit.

He worked for a number of years for the National Office of the Cursillo Movement and subsequently became a leader in the national and international development of the charismatic renewal movement in the Catholic Church.

He was the founding editor of New Covenant Magazine, as well as founding director of the International Catholic Charismatic Renewal Office, currently located in Rome. During this time, he and his family spent four years living in Belgium, working closely with Cardinal L.J. Suenens.

Currently Ralph is president of Renewal Ministries, an organization devoted to Catholic renewal and evangelization. Renewal Ministries is accountable in its work to a Board of Directors in the United States, chaired by Bishop Sam Jacobs of Alexandria, LA and in Canada to a Board chaired by Bishop Faber MacDonald of St. John, New Brunswick.

Renewal Ministries is the sponsor of The Choices We Face a widely viewed weekly Catholic television and radio program distributed throughout the world. Renewal Ministries is also actively involved in assisting the Church in Eastern Europe, Africa, and various other places through leadership training, evangelistic conferences and retreats, and the publication and distribution of literature.

Ralph is also a Visiting Professor of Theology at the Franciscan University of Steubenville, at Ave Maria College, and at Sacred Heart School of Theology.

He is the author of a number of books: The Catholic Church at the End of an Age: What is the Spirit Saying?, Is Jesus Coming Soon? A Catholic Perspective on the Second Coming, Called to Holiness, and Hungry for God: Practical Help in Personal Prayer. All are published by Ignatius Press. He is currently working on developing materials communicating the teaching of Doctors of the Church in the area of growth in union with God. He and his wife Anne are parents of six children and reside in Ann Arbor, Michigan in the Diocese of Lansing.
The Choices We Face
Each week Ralph Martin, on his show, The Choices We Face, proclaims the basic truths of Christianity. He urges repentance and faithfulness to scripture; he emphasizes the need for all to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ; he imparts the courage to stand firm over the long haul as together we cope with an increasingly secular society.
