When the summer days get long and hot, the gift of free time can become the burden of boredom. In this video, Fr. Mike shows us how boredom can also be a gift if we take the time to be creative, instead of just looking for something to distract us like food or social media.


The wisdom he shares here is akin to that of many successful, insightful writers such as Cal Newport and Josef Pieper. You can find the works Fr. Mike references in the video here:

Cal Newport’s Deep Work
Josef Pieper’s Leisure, the Basis of Culture

Fr. Mike is also a presenter in these faith formation programs from Ascension:
