Mary Vitamin:

The Word was made Flesh.

In Conversation with God:

The devil exists. Holy Scripture speaks of him from the first to the last of the revealed books, from Genesis to the Apocalypse… Some people are inclined towards a superficial optimism and think evil is merely an incidental imperfection in a world which is continually evolving towards better days.

… the history of mankind has been adversely affected by the devil’s influence. We find in our day all the features of an intense evil which cannot be explained in terms of human behaviour alone.

From the first centuries, Christians were conscious of diabolical activity.

The devil will try to reduce the human spirit...

The devil – and our angels – cannot penetrate our innermost thoughts if we do not want them to. The unclean spirits cannot know the nature of our thoughts, they can only conjecture at them from outwardly perceptible indications, or else by examining our dispositions, our words or the things they notice that we tend towards…

… what we have not chosen to exteriorise so that it remains hidden within our souls, is totally inaccessible to them. Even the very thoughts that they suggest to us, the reception we give them, the reaction they cause within us… they cannot know any of this because of the very essence of our soul… except… through our movements and external manifestations…

The devil is unable to violate our liberty so as to incline it towards evil.


… i know that time has numbered my days… and my ears hear the call of my unborn sons… i know my weakness, know my voice, i’ll believe in grace and choice… press my nose up to the glass around your heart…
… you forgave and i won’t forget…
… take my hand, help me on my way, and i’ll walk slow, i’ll walk slow…
… where are you now, do you ever think of me in the quiet, in the crowd…
… i’ll find strength in pain, and i will change my ways, i’ll know my name as it’s called again…
… can you kneel before the King and say, “i’m clean…” lead me to the truth and i will follow you with my whole life…
… awake my soul, for you were made to meet your maker…
… and there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears, and love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears…

ToB #50 ~ Purity of Heart

But he said that the things which come out from a man, they defile a man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a man. ~ Mk 7:21 – 23

  • lascivious – feeling or revealing an overt and often offensive sexual desire
