Faith Of Mike In Christianity

Mike and his family firmly believe in Christianity; according to him, a strong relationship with God through prayer and sacraments is essential.

He believes men must reflect god’s unconditional love for their children; humility is important.

He says, “Humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less often.”

Mike Sweeney Sr., who had sacrificed his baseball career to provide for his family, played a significant role in inspiring his son, Mike Sweeney.

This influence started when Mike was a premature infant with uncertain odds of survival.

Mike Sr. arranged for a priest to baptize the baby and then went outside to pray for a miracle, desperately hoping to save his son’s life.

Thankfully, the Sweeney family experienced a happy ending with their prevailing unwavering faith in God.
