“Satan fears her not only more than angels and men but in a certain sense more than God himself. This does not mean that the anger, hatred and power of God are not infinitely greater than the Blessed Virgin’s, since her attributes are limited. It simply means that Satan, being so proud, suffers infinitely more in being vanquished and punished by a lowly and humble servant of God, for her humility humiliates him more than the power of God.”(St. Louis de Montfort) How mighty and wise is our God that a simple girl/woman should cause should fear in Satan. How mighty and wise is our God that he invites us to ask for Mary's intercession in our struggle with the power of evil. We are to imitate her who kept her eyes on the Father in spite of the many difficulties and sorrows she had to endure. Her total obedience to the Father's will was something the Evil One could not change. Jesus himself gave us the example in his confrontation with the attacks of Satan. His heart was committed to the Father's will even to the death on the cross. Mary imitated Jesus. We are called to do the same.
