Thought of the Day June 13, 2024 Power over temptation

By 10:14 AM


"The devil is afraid of us when we pray and make sacrifices. He is also afraid when we are humble and good. He is especially afraid when we love Jesus very much. He runs away when we make the Sign of the Cross." St Anthony of Padua


The Devil seeks to draw us away from God, as he did with Adam and Eve. When we pray, our focus is God, who is deserving of all praise. When we are humble, our focus is God, to whom we owe everything. When we love as Jesus taught, our focus is God, who is love. When we sign ourselves with the cross, we are embracing the instrument that overcame Satan. We have so many tools at our disposal to avoid falling for the temptations of the Devil. Each of these tools is a grace from God to strengthen us to remain faithful to God.
