St Teresa of Avila Reminds us Who is the Most Powerful
One of my favorite quotes of St Teresa of Avila is when she speaks about how sick and tired she is about all the people crying out as if fascinated with "the devil, the devil, the devil, what about God, God, God!! Why don't you be fascinated with his power, his glory, his victory." However cunning may the serpent be, he is still just a stupid little snake, who is crushed readily by the Mighty and Merciful God and those who trust in his Name. May Our Lady bring about a new cohort of warriors, ready, as St Louis De Montfort says, to destroy the kingdom of satan with one hand and build the Kingdom of Christ with the other. O Maria, Mater Dei et Mater nobis, tota pulchra est, ora pro nobis!
