Archbishop Fulton Sheen Describes Who Satan Really Is

Archbishop Fulton Sheen

In the past year I stumbled across Archbishop Fulton Sheen and have come to realize what a true man of God he was and how after 57 years on this planet what I had been missing. As a cradle Catholic and being born in Long Island, New York, I admit had no idea who he was. Archbishop Sheen was a gentle man, but from what I am learning he was also a fierce warrior of God.  My father was a career Air Force veteran and I followed and served in the Air Force for over 29 years. During that time I got to know great men and women that were true warriors and they all had a strong belief in the Almighty God and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I have studied military tactics, read SunTzu “the Art of War”, I studied Patton and other great warrior leaders and they all believed in a higher power. (I want to make something perfectly clear, I was not a front line troop and though I served as a First Sergeant in Air Force Special Operations units I was not an operator.) I have studied martial arts for over 48 years and there too I studied great masters and philosophy. Here I found they also understood it was a higher power that guided them. Many of these people I have come to know had some degree of humility, love of family and yet were fierce warriors. They understood their adversaries and I too studied opponents and enemies and trained as realistically as possible so I could either neutralize or defeat them.

So, now I knew the Lord’s plans for me, so I knew I had to study the adversary…..the devil,  aka Lucifer.   It was in the course of my research I came across this YouTube clip where Archbishop Fulton Sheen Describes Who Satan Really Is and Satan does not run around in red tights, hoofed feet, with horns on his head and a pitchfork in his hand as C. S. Lewis pointed out in his book; “Mere Christianity“. Today we make jokes about Satan and marginalize him which is exactly what he wants and precisely why he is the most devious and dangerous adversary ever known to man’s very existence. Bishop Sheen’s illuminating discussion will tell you who Satan is and why you need God’s help protecting yourself from him. then you can understand why he sought to destroy his any way he could and that was through the very Church Bishop Sheen knew and loved.
