THE SPIRITUAL COMBAT
DOM LORENZO SCUPOLI
Publisher: To be had in Kindle E-Book:
The Combat is a practical manual of living. In the beginning it teaches that the sense of life is incessant fighting against egoistic longings and replacing them with sacrifice and charity. The person who does not do that loses, and suffers in Hell; The person who does it, trusting not in his own, but God’s power, triumphs and is happy in Heaven. The work of Scupoli analyses quite a lot of same old situations and advises how to deal with them, preserving a pure moral sense and bettering virtue. It emphasizes also the boundless goodness of God, which is the reason for all good. What is bad originates from the human who rebels against God.
