Read ‘The Confessional is a Place of Victory’ by Fr. Mike Schmitz.
Sometimes we’re not everything we wish we could be. At times all we can do is act as if we believe, because we’re just not up to truly putting our faith in God at that moment. In this video, Fr. Mike explains why, in a sense, it’s OK to be a “hypocrite” at those times. It’s OK to act like a person who believes even when we feel like we don’t. Otherwise, we might think “being honest” and acting like we don’t believe is better—even when we really do believe and are just going through a tough time.
