The thrill of victory...the agony of defeat. Men, these next two weeks James and Fr. Dom talk about the battle we face each and every day. We may not always be cognizant of this battle, but we better believe it is going on constantly around us. The spiritual battle is one anyone hardly talks about but it is the battle we men must be ready and willing to fight for our souls and the souls of our families.
Fr. Chad Ripperger says demons are nothing to be afraid of if we are attached to Christ. He likens to Jesus as a 500-lb. gorilla he brings along to an exorcism that the demons shudder in fear to because they know they are about to be beaten to the ground. Men, Christ has beaten death, Satan's ultimate fear he lingers over our head. As David says, "Oh death, where is thy victory? Oh death, where is thy sting?" If we lean into Christ to the point where He is literally holding us up, there is nothing we cannot do.
In Part 1 on this 2-part series, James and Fr. Dom talk about why prayer is our ultimate defense against diabolical influence, how and why identifying your mission in life is key to sticking to it, and prevailing, and how demons might run the simplest offense in the history of football yet they are often successful.
