The Violent Bear it Away

"And from the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent bear it away."

-St. Matthew 11:12

Side note: [12] "Suffereth violence": It is not to be obtained but by main force, by using violence upon ourselves, by mortification and penance, and resisting our perverse inclinations.
