I don’t normally write for my readers. In fact, this is the first time that I am. I write this because we’re at war; we’re in the midst of a spiritual battle whether we want to acknowledge it or not. Will you fight with us (God, the Queen of Heaven, the Angels, the Saints, the Holy Souls in Purgatory, the Souls here on Earth)?
Before today, I never thought much of the ‘spiritual battle’. I think little of the ‘culture war’. I thought of it as someone else’s concern.
A few days ago, I watched Dr. Peter Kreeft give a compelling presentation on ‘How to win the culture war’. While I enjoyed listening to what Dr. Kreeft had to say, I still did not think of the culture war as a very real thing, it felt abstract and something that is distant to me.
Today, however, I came across a set of photos that depicted Our Lady and Christ in the form of cute little kimmidolls. At this moment, I realised how real and close the spiritual battle really was. The evil one would have us believe that Christ and Christianity are cute playthings that are only for little children and to be grown out of. But nothing can be further from the truth!
Let us always remember to never treat Our Lady as a “soft, sugary, sweet, fragile, harmless object of devotion for little old ladies and little old men”. She is “God’s greatest and most formidable weapon against [Satan]. The new Eve who reverses the sin of the old Eve, and whose offspring crushed the head of the serpent [Satan]”.
Let us always remember that Christ’s Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity is truely and most literally present in all the tabernacles in the world and at every single Holy Mass that is celebrated.
Let us always remember that Christ is risen and reigns supreme with the Queen Mother always close by His side!
The battle is already won, which side will you choose? Be brave! Be bold! Be confident! Forward, into the breach!
I’ll ‘see’ you on the battlefield.
May the Divine assistence be always with you,
