How to Fight Our Battles Using the Word of God

Today, Fr. Josh answers a question from Abigail Cole: “Love these videos! Would you be willing to post a video about spiritual warfare? I don’t think the Catholic Church talks about it enough and how crucial it is to battle. We are, after all, battling to find further intimacy with God. Our spiritual defense should not be “please help me Father” to ward of temptation but a stand in the authority of Christ to bring against spiritual assaults. The evil one has set loose far too much evil in the world, can we not encourage this stand against him?”

Ask Fr. Josh is the question and answer show to help you navigate life when our Catholic Faith doesn’t give an easy “fill-in-the-blank” answer. In each video, Father addresses one question from three different perspectives: your relationship with God, your relationship with the Church, and your relationship with others.

While Fr. Josh was raised Catholic, he didn’t like the Church growing up. Then, one day in adoration, he fell in love with Jesus and received the call to become a priest.

Now, Fr. Josh is the Vocations Director of the Diocese of Baton Rouge in Louisiana. He is a presenter in four of Ascension’s programs: Altaration, YOU: Life, Love, and the Theology of the Body, The 99, and Connected: Catholic Social Teaching for This Generation, as well as the author of Broken and Blessed: An Invitation to My Generation, Pocket Guide to Adoration, and co-author of Pocket Guide to Reconciliation.
