Sermon Spotlight: The Value of Prayerful Silence
Fr. Mike Schmitz discusses the importance of peace and quiet for true, heartfelt messages to God
Any new mom or dad can tell you the value of complete silence — but it’s also a very important condition for prayer.
Fr. Mike Schmitz, the chaplain for Newman Catholic Campus Ministry at the University of Minnesota Duluth, as well as the director of the Office of Youth Ministry for the Diocese of Duluth, takes on this spiritual topic in his latest video.
“God never ignores us, but sometimes we simply can’t hear Him due to all of the distractions in our life. That’s why Fr. Mike Schmitz feels it’s necessary for people to become more comfortable with silence, because silence is God’s first language, and it is in silence that we will best hear Him,” reads the video’s description.
