On Spiritual Battle

To aspire for sanctity and to condemn injustices is not a wholly restful affair. In the battle for the Kingdom of God against the reign of sin, the disciples shall have to give and receive blows. There is your 'holy war.' It is to this that he leads them and where they will valiantly endure outrages, calumnies, even death.
+ George Chevrot, The Eight Beatitudes; p.28
