You Are at War…Will You Fight?
Yes, Satan is real. And yes, he wants your soul.
Will you fight back?
If this sounds dramatic…it is!
But nothing in your life is more important than your eternal soul.
You need to learn how to protect it. You need to learn how to fight against the devil.
In our series, Spiritual Warfare, we’ll give you the weapons and strategies you need to defeat the enemy.
In this 21-part series, presented by retired U.S. Army chaplain, Fr. Matthew Pawlikowski, we’ll show you how to:
- Understand how demons tempt you, so that you can effectively defend yourself from their attacks (Session 5)
- Call upon the angels—who have already defeated their fallen foes—to help you in your own fight (Session 7)
- Unlock the full power of Confession: a powerful secret weapon against the enemy (Session 12)
- Wield the ultimate weapon against Satan and his minions (Session 17)
- Call upon three saints in particular who did battle with Satan—and who can help you by their intercession (Session 9, 10, 11)
- Utilize prayer and fasting in spiritual warfare (Session 14)
The devil is real…and he is grasping for your soul. The good news is that you have the power of God, the saints, and the angels marching by your side.
There are powerful spiritual weapons at your disposal. Join us for Spiritual Warfare, and we’ll teach you how to use them.
There’s a battle for your soul. Fight back…and win!

Chaplain Colonel Matthew Pawlikowski (RET)
Fr. Matthew Pawlikowski was born and raised in New Jersey, the youngest of seven children: five boys and two girls. He graduated from West Point in 1986 and was commissioned an Infantry officer. He served at Ft. Benning, Georgia; Uijeongbu, Korea; and Fort Bragg, North Carolina (home of the 82nd Airborne Division). Ordained a priest in 1997, he was assigned for three years to St. Thomas the Apostle Parish in Bloomfield. He also served as chaplain to the Bloomfield Police Department and liaison to the town’s Ecumenical Pastors Association. He re-entered active duty as an Army chaplain and immediately returned to Fort Bragg. While serving in Sinai, Egypt, as part of the Multinational Peacekeeping Force, he led over 50 pilgrimages to Mount Sinai, Cairo and Israel. While assigned to Kaiserslautern, Germany, he led congregations to the International Military Pilgrimage in Lourdes (twice), a pilgrimage to Poland (once) and hiked a personal pilgrimage on the final 70-mile portion of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela in Spain. At Fort Sill, Oklahoma, he was the command chaplain and senior priest for the post; he led soldiers in 60-mile pilgrimages to Pilsen, Kansas—the hometown of chaplain (Capt.) the Rev. Emil Joseph Kapaun, a Medal of Honor recipient from the Korean War and currently being considered for canonization. In June 2015, he was assigned to West Point as the senior chaplain, the first Catholic to ever hold the position. He also serves there as chaplain to the Army Football Team.
