Sermon Spotlight: Why the Tiniest Task Means So Much

Fr. Mike Schmitz of Minnesota uses a short story by J.R.R. Tolkien to demonstrate the promise of 'the hope of heaven'

Sometimes even getting out of bed in the morning can be offered up for the greater good.

Father Mike Schmitz, chaplain for Newman Catholic Campus Ministry at the University of Minnesota Duluth, talks in his new video about the little things in life and why they matter so much — especially for our path to heaven.

“In this video, Fr. Mike Schmitz explains why every little thing we do in life matters, even if it is an insignificant endeavor in the eyes of the world. Reflecting on J.R.R. Tolkien’s short story ‘Leaf by Niggle,’ Fr. Mike shows us how the hope of heaven can give eternally deeper meaning to even the most minute tasks in our lives,” reads the description of the video.
