DURING prayer, I had an image of a Bible in one hand, and the Catechism in the other. Then they turned into a single double-edged sword, held in both hands.
We fight not with our own weapons, but with that which Christ gave us: Scripture and Tradition.
I thought of how our Protestant brethren often fight expertly with just the single-edged sword of Scripture. But, without the proper interpretation–Tradition–many have accidentally turned the sword on themselves.
Catholics have often entered the battle with just the single-edged sword of Tradition. But ignorant of the Word of God, they have been impuissant, leaving their sword in it’s sheath.
But when both are wielded as one… falsehood is slayed, lies are be-headed, and spiritual blindness put to flight!
