5 weapons against Satan


Satan has convinced the world that he does not exist.  He has lied to the world that there is no sin.  He continues to dupe everyone into believing that everyone is going to Heaven.  Satan is not only the father of lies, he is a lie.  When dealing with Satan, we deal with chaos and pure evil.
Satan has destroyed the modern world through sexual sin.
The murder of an unborn child is reproductive health.
Fornication is cohabitation.
Sodomy is gay.
We are engaged in a gigantic battle against evil

First of all, we must be completely convinced of the ultimate victory of our Savior, Jesus Christ.  “Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father” (Matthew 13: 43).   

We must persevere. Do not allow discouragement to overcome you.
Secondly, we must stay connected with Jesus.  Left to our own resources, our fallen human nature cannot resist evil.  Daily, structured and organized moments of prayer are essential if we are to survive.
As our physical immune system needs to be well nourished in order to resist disease, so too does our spiritual immune system need daily sustenance.  “The Spirit comes to the aid of our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes with inexpressible groanings” (Romans 8:26).   
Daily Mass, daily meditation on the Scriptures, daily recitation of the Rosary, frequent Confession and the solitude of Eucharistic adoration are the preferred moments that provide health and strength to anyone who desires to continue the good fight.
Thirdly, your family life needs to be strong.  Get back to basics: order, discipline, have dinner together, limit all the crazy activities, build up a healthy emotional life by building up a healthy social life.  If there is peace and happiness in your family life, it will be very difficult for Satan to attack your home.
Fourthly, be very, very careful about the use of the TV and the Internet.  Pornography is a very serious and common addiction.
Finally, get back to the regular use of the Sacrament of Confession.  This is your greatest weapon against Satan.  Don’t play with mortal sin.  Many people walk around with caked on mortal sin.  They never go to confession and they continue to receive Holy Communion every Sunday.  We must always remember Saint Paul’s words to the Corinthians: “In fact that is why many of you are weak and ill, and some of you have died” (1 Corinthians 11: 30).
When our Blessed Mother appeared to the three children of Fatima in 1917, they were allowed to see a vision of Hell.  Thousands of poor souls were falling into Hell, and our Blessed Mother told the children that more souls were being lost because of sexual sin than any other sin.
“An enemy has done this.”
Use these proven methods against the attack of Satan in order to gain the eternal salvation of your soul.  “Whoever has ears ought to hear.”
