Fr. Mike Schmitz, chaplain for Newman Catholic Campus Ministries at the University of Minnesota Duluth, is always a great source of spiritual inspiration and direction. His Sunday homilies, which he uploads as podcasts, are easy to digest while being incredibly thoughtful and substantive.
On this most recent Divine Mercy Sunday, Fr. Mike started a series of homilies focusing on what he calls Heroic Confidence. In this series, Fr. Mike puts forth the claim that many of us live and act with a sort of caution or timidity when it comes to the faith – as if we are afraid of living it to the fullest. But that is the opposite to how we should act! If we truly believe that Jesus rose from the dead, what do we have to fear?
