REFLECTION…

.

There are many kinds of shields:

– .

– the shield of faith against the misinterpretation of the Truth;

– the shield of patience against suffering brought on by the spiteful acts of others;

– the shield against greed and materialism;

– the shield of the memory of Christ’s passion, which protects against the weaknesses of the flesh;

– the shield of the example of the saints against inner suggestions of pride and self-importance;

– the shield of Sacred Scripture against those who fight the truth;

– the shield of the word of God against all attempts to corrupt human morals.

.

.

[today’s reflection is inspired by St. Albert the Great’s commentary on Psalm 5]

QUOTE…

He is a shield to those who come to Him for protection.”
