Our fight is not against human foes but against cosmic powers, against the authorities and potentates of this dark world, against the superhuman forces of evil in the heavens. Stand firm, I say, and fasten onto the belt of truth. You have but to stand firm and watch the Lord coming to your aid.
That responsory from the Office of Readings seems very apt. The whole world, as they day, has gone mad. It strains the gnat and swallows the camel, nurtures beasts and murders children, and even where we least expect it, our children are taught falsehood while Godly doctrine is shunned. But our job is to stand firm, the battle is God's, and he has already won the war.
