Desert Fathers: Watchfulness - On Guarding the Heart
What does St. Paul mean when he admonishes us to be "reformed by the renewing of our minds" (Romans 12:2)? Former Biola professor and Catholic convert Dr. Robert Llizo presents how the Desert Fathers understood by this the importance of guarding our thoughts.
In an effort to do this, they decided to engage in this spiritual fight within a context of radical disengagement from the world. In their desert struggles, they gave to all Christians a wealth of wisdom concerning the true nature of spiritual warfare. We explore these matters more deeply, finding that their struggles and temptations are very much our own.
