Giving up our vanities can be one of the more challenging things in growing closer the God.

Fr. Mike Schmitz, chaplain for Newman Catholic Campus Ministry at the University of Minnesota–Duluth and director of the Office of Youth Ministry for the Diocese of Duluth, discusses the need to find our identities in Christ and not in worldly things.

“Whether it’s our reputation as the smartest person in the class or office, or a signature beard that makes us look like Chuck Norris, we all have something distinct that helps define us. In the end​,​ though, when everything else fades away, there’s only one part of our identity that matters. Find out what part that is in this video, in which Fr. Mike uses his beard to make a razor-sharp point. Yes … his beard,” reads the description of his video.
