Quote

One of my many favorite quotes... I'm curious to see if anyone knows it.

"Put on the armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the Powers, against the Principalities, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places."

No googling that quote! - I want to see if you know it offhand.

I think I have may have heard that before. Is it from a movie or a book? Or is it something actually said in church. No I won't cheat and google it. Could you please give me a hint. danke.

Oh my gosh. MATT!!!! (Sorry!)

It's from the Bible. Actually, it's St. Paul to the Ephesians, I think. I do know that it's the Epistle from the 21st Sunday after Pentecost.

To Matt: Go ahead and look it up now. ;)

Rebecca: Wow - I was expecting you to know that it was from St. Paul, but didn't think you'd remember it being the Epistle from the 21st Sunday after Pentecost! That my inspiration for this post... was reading my missal again.

Typo: "That was my inspiration..." (etc.).
