The Violent Take It By Force, Part 2

In this episode, Veronica Hughes shares Part 2 of her reflection on “Spiritual Violence.” What are the awesome weapons our Lord gave us to fight our spiritual battles internally and externally? Veronica explores, through the writings of St. Paul, St. Ambrose, St. John Chrysostom and others, the concept of spiritual warfare in a study of our Lord’s words, “The Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force.” We will learn how “winning the Kingdom of Heaven” means learning to use the weapons of mercy and prayer, and wearing the spiritual armor of the Light of Christ.
