Militant Peace

Sounds rather oxymoronic, doesn't it?

The concluding petitions to this week's collect are that the heavenly Father would defend us against all enemies of the Word and would bestow upon Christ's Church Militant His saving peace.

Peace. What kind of militancy exudes peace, anyway???

I guess that would be the "militancy" of a church that is beaten up and ridiculed and mocked ... and which finds her peace not in what she sees or experiences but in the promises of her Lord.
