The Meaning of Suffering

Books upon books have been written about the problem of suffering. Fr. Mike isn’t about to reinvent the wheel in this video, but the wisdom he shares in it ​echoes​ that of the saints. What did the saints and martyrs know about suffering that enabled them to endure so much of it? Christ didn’t give them some mystical superpower; he simply gave their suffering a purpose.

Fr. Mike's videos are now available as podcasts at www.ascensionpresents.com/podcasts.

How to Prepare for the Sunday Readings

Have you ever left Mass feeling like the homily just wasn't satisfactory? In this video, Father Mike Schmitz shows us how to always gain what we need from the Sunday readings, regardless of the quality of the homily. Father Mike also tells us not to be so hard on priests when they miss the mark, because their job is harder than it seems from the pew.

Another great way to prepare for the Sunday readings is by watching Jeff Cavins' Encountering the Word videos posted every Wednesday on Ascension Presents. You can find them here: https://bit.ly/2Ehimoe.
