Fr. Mike Schmitz, Ascension Presents, July 3, 2019

We hear the phrase “in the world but not of it” quite often. But how do we live that out in our everyday lives? Fr. Mike gives a crash course on how to follow Christ in situations where there may be tension between you and someone you’re close to.

Reminding us of Matthew 10:34, “I have not come to bring peace, but a sword,” Fr. Mike explains that Jesus is a cause of division. As followers of Christ, we have to acknowledge and accept the painful reality that following him will cause us to be divided from many people we love.

Once we accept that, allowing God’s love to fill our hearts, we will search for ways to love those who strongly disagree with us.
