God Doesn’t Owe You Anything

Last edited 20th April 2017

When we’re going through hard times, it’s easy to think we deserve better from God. In this video, Fr. Mike uses a compelling story from the book of Daniel to exemplify the challenging but proper response to adversity. As tough as it may be, finding a way to thank God no matter the situation is a sure way to holiness.

Holy Thursday Explained

Last edited 13th April 2017

Holy Thursday is the commemoration of the Last Supper of Jesus Christ, when he established the sacrament of Holy Communion prior to his arrest and crucifixion. It also commemorates His institution of the priesthood. The holy day falls on the Thursday before Easter and is part of Holy Week. Jesus celebrated the dinner as a Passover feast. Christ would fulfil His role as the Christian victim of the Passover for all to be saved by His final sacrifice.

Good Friday: The Meaning of the Cross

Last edited 13th April 2017

Many people wonder, and even become angry, about God’s ways. In this video for Good Friday, Fr. Mike explains why God’s answers often seem like contradictions to us. While Jesus dying on the Cross makes no sense according to human wisdom, according to God’s perfect wisdom?,? the Cross answers all our most burning questions in a way only God can answer them.

Acedia: The Noonday Devil

Last edited 26th March 2017

Fr. Mike Schmitz delivers a timely video in the midst of our Lenten journey as he explores the ancient concept of acedia. This temptation tends to come in the middle of the day and can obscure our resolve by distracting us from God’s purpose for us. While even great saints were tempted by it, the remedy is something we can all receive with a little faith.

When I was in fourth grade I was much the same as I am now: a loudmouth who knew everything and therefore had to be taught by experience.

Mortal vs. Venial Sin: Fr Mike Schmitz

Last edited 1st February 2017

Even though mortal sins are more deadly than venial sins, that doesn’t mean venial sins are harmless. Fr. Mike explains the damage venial sins do to us and advises us to not become complacent in our sin, no matter how minor it may seem to us, because all sin negatively impacts our relationship with God.

He is Near (Advent Video by Life Teen)

Who would the Holy Family be in our world today? Would you notice them? Would they stand out? Or would you be tempted to judge them? Look away? To see them as a statistic? As one more family who isn’t meeting society's standards of “good enough”?
