As he sat in prison and anticipated a cruel and untimely death, St. Paul refused to give into negativity. He implored others to “have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God.”
How could St. Paul stay positive in such a dire situation? He kept his focus on God.
And as Fr. Chad Ripperger tells us this week, the Evil One hates that.
When we set our sights on the good, the demons are forced to flee. Fr. Ripperger has seen this happen with the possessed people he has worked with, but it can work for all of us.
We should all make positivity a part of our everyday spiritual lives. Join me and find out how to do just that.
