"In J. R. R. Tolkien's desire to create a mythology for his
homeland, he actually made one for every person, every land, and
every age. "The Lordof the Rings "is a catechism of spiritual
warfare cleverly disguised as a fantasy. The struggle against evil
that takes place inside its pages is the same one that occurs even
now within the soul of each person."
As we cannot leave the field of battle until death takes us from
it, we should learn as much as we can about how to fight from those
who have labored before us. Certainly the Red Book of Westmarch is
one source to use. We may not have to sacrifice ourselves as does
Gandalf, but we can learn from him and his wise counsels and from
the others who he taught. Frodo guides us as well, as he makes his
torturous journey to Mount Doom and endures the Ring's unceasing
temptations. With him, we see that sometimes we overcome our
temptations, and at other times they overwhelm us. We also learn,
as he and Boromir do, to get back up and start the struggle anew.
Sam shows us the height of hope and the depth of devotion. In fact,
everyone in the tale, good as well as evil, has something to teach
Anne Marie Gazzolo hopes that you will find inspiration within
to apply to your life.
