In all circumstances, hold faith as a shield, to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
St. Paul uses imagery of a warrior in a spiritual battle. But notice he does not suggest doing any violence. The only weapon he suggests is the “sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” If we immerse ourselves in the words of the prophets and of Jesus Himself…our lives will be transformed…and we will become the transformation that will help transform this world into the Kingdom of God.
