We have won the war but are you prepared for the battle?

July 10-11, 2015 - Retreat Master: Fr. Chad Ripperger. "Its tail swept away a third of the stars in the sky and hurled them down to the earth. Then the dragon stood before the woman about to give birth, to devour her child when she gave birth." (Rev 12:4) With the rebellion of the fallen angels the battle of souls began. Prepare yourself for battle by understanding your enemy and equipping yourself for the fight. Fr. Chad Ripperger's expertise in spiritual warfare will prepare you for the greatest victory; the battle for your soul.
