"To hurl Him down"

     This threatens all of us - that Satan will ensnare us.  But before that happens there will be rumble of approaching storm, a sudden noise will spread -the beginning of an avalanche.  We can still save ourselves.  But if we surrender to it, it will come crashing down and destroy us.  This can be hatred, anger, revenge or self-interest, greed, avarice, conceit or the desire to dominate others.  The evil spirit will overcome us so much that we will loose ourselves, he will be controlling us and he will overrun and subjugate us to him.

         Fr. M. M.
