Wielding the Sword (Holy Warriors Part 50)


In our work of evangelization and mission, we are deep into spiritual warfare, against a strong enemy. This is a fight to the death, or rather, unto life. This war rages until the end of time, when Christ and his armies achieve the final victory.


Arise, holy warriors, and wield the sword of the Spirit, the word of God.

‘AND A SWORD THY OWN SOUL SHALL PIERCE’




An excerpt from Chapter 4 of The Weapon, by Michael Voris.


******* His name was Simeon, and of him we do not know much, other than that he was a devout and upright man. It had been made known to him by the Holy Spirit he would not die until he had seen the Messiah with his own eyes. What we can safely assume is that Simeon must have been a man of deep holiness to be afforded such a singular grace. In addition to being devout and morally upright, there must have been a deep, abiding presence of faith and hope and charity. His canticle to God after he took the Babe into his arms speaks of this.



He knew intuitively of the great battle about to ensue. He knew it in his bones, his soul, his mind. He knew also that this was not just a battle involving his own race, but was a war involving all humanity. He knew the stakes were nothing less than salvation, and that this was for the nations. He knew too the cost of this Great War would be incalculable suffering. So when he returns the Babe to the arms of His Mother and father, he takes Mary aside and says to Her that She would suffer most of all — a sword would pierce her immaculate soul.
