This was live-streamed on their Facebook page and their Web site, where it continues to be available for viewing. St. Mary’s pastor, Fr. Richard Heilman, wrote: “When I spoke with Fr. Ripperger about a possible topic for his talk, I said, “What does it look like if someone really wants to go all in – totally serious and committed – as a kind of “Navy Seal of Spiritual Warfare?” That’s when he offered the topic of “Different Levels of Spiritual Warfare.”
