Monday of Holy Week

It is in our lives that “Death and Life contend in the combat stupendous”; it is in our lives that “the Prince of Life, Who died, reigns alive” (Sequence, Victimae paschali laudes). “For we are not contending against flesh and blood,” says Saint Paul, “but against the principalities, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Eph 6:12). The struggle against the powers of darkness is present, not only in the lives of individual Christians, but also in the culture.
~Father Mark at Vultus Christi (Please visit everyday during Holy Week.)
