There is a spiritual battle around us and we must fight.
St. Paul famously wrote in his letter to the Ephesians, “For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12).It is a truth of the Catholic faith that Satan and his minions are real and are actively engaged in a battle against us. They eagerly want our demise, but we must fight back against them. Pope Francis explained this reality during a daily Mass homily in 2014.
The devil exists and we have to fight against him. Paul says so — I’m not the one saying it. The word of God says it … However, do not be discouraged. (Have) courage and strength because the Lord is with us.Among the many prayers that the Church provides for us in this battle against Satan, here is one simply called “Prayer to Defeat the Work of Satan.” It is a powerful prayer, one that begs God to cast out the darkness from this world once and for all.
O Divine Eternal Father, in union with your Divine Son and the Holy Spirit, and through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg You to destroy the Power of your greatest enemy — the evil spirits. Cast them into the deepest recesses of hell and chain them there forever! Take possession of your Kingdom which You have created and which is rightfully yours. Heavenly Father, give us the reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. I repeat this prayer out of pure love for You with every beat of my heart and with every breath I take. Amen
Medjugorje: the Devil’s plan is to destroy the world. “Whoever has the Spirit of God, reads the signs of these times with ease, realizes that the world is now in the hands of satan.” BUT OUR LADY IS STOPPING HIM!

Why does Our Lady appear in Medjugorje? Father Giulio speaks.
The attack of satan against humanity and against the Catholic Church has become ruthless in the past decades, many and strange facts have happened in the world to arouse apprehension in many people. This is why the apparition of the Virgin Mary arises in Medjugorje, considered true and extraordinary also by many Cardinals and Bishops.
If we still believe in the Gospel, we cannot deny that Satan is the tempter and perverter of humanity. He fights with all his strength and his damned demonic intuitions to withdraw us from Jesus and throw us into despair and then into hell. He does not remain still for a moment, he thinks, plans and acts to hit us at the weakest point and thus destroy our resistance. Above all, it tries to weaken us by distracting us from prayer, inspiring us many things, even good ones, so as not to make us pray anymore.
In this regard we read this message: “When you feel weakness in your prayer, do not stop but continue to pray with all your heart. And do not pay attention to the body, but gather yourself completely in your spirit. Pray with even greater strength so that your body does not win the spirit and your prayer is not empty. All of you who feel feeble in prayer, pray more ardently, fight and meditate on what you pray for. Do not let any thought deceive you in prayer. Remove all thoughts, except those that unite Me and Jesus to you. ”(February 27, 1985).
It is a clear message about the action of satan towards the weak, those who pray little or badly and are incapable of governing the thoughts that come to mind, of discerning and intuiting the origin of an idea, so as to be conditioned by any thought that arrives to the mind.
Many of the thoughts that come to our mind are temptations of satan and distract us, make prayer empty, without love and trust. We know that Satan never rests.
Our thoughts also come from Satan, he is the main deviator of our Faith, it is he who always wants to distance us from the truth of the Gospel. But there is also our human spirit to give us sensations contrary to the truth, if we live our Faith with little fidelity.
Whoever has the Spirit of God, reads the signs of these times with ease, realizes that the world is now in the hands of satan; instead, those who do not have the Spirit of God do not understand how terrifying Satan is preparing against humanity. It seems that everything goes well, indeed, never gone better because this life is a real pleasure, you can satisfy every pleasure, every instinct that comes to mind.
In those people in whom satan is master, strong anger is born mixed with hatred against Medjugorje and against Our Lady, they come to utter heavy offenses against the Mother of God, only because she comes to call us back to the fidelity of the Gospel and to tell us that Jesus calls us to conversion and to his commandments. Many people who condemn the apparitions of the Madonna are Catholic.
Satan and all the devils are unleashed against humanity and try to destroy all that is possible. Their murderous fury transmits hatred in all those who are not protected by the Madonna, and this also applies to the consecrated. And where there is hatred, Our Lady came to talk to us about the Love of Jesus and to invite us to forgiveness. “Love, love!Jesus easily converts people if you love. Love you too: this is how you change the world! ”(February 23, 1985).
In people without the Grace of God, there is a greater inclination to malice and transgression, to malice, to use every form of disloyalty to get what they want.
This rule does not apply to all non-believers or indifferent believers. But in many cases it is so. In one way or another. Even for one situation only and not for all those in which they are involved. But it is enough to run into a negative situation with those who do not love and live bad things, to suffer moral, spiritual and dignity damages.
We find ourselves involved in an incredible spiritual war between the forces of Good and the forces of evil. In the end, the Good will always win, but in the meantime the disturbance caused by the satanic forces will have caused suffering and will make the good people suffer enormously, however, millions and millions of human beings.
The persecutions against the Catholic Church and the followers of Christ, the strange and incurable diseases, the wars caused by satan will have been innumerable in the meantime.
To understand well this outburst of satan, the danger of the betrayal of many Sanctified in the Catholic Church, the emptying of morals, we must read the book of the Apocalypse.Everything is explained there. Even the ardent plan of satan against God. It is a real war at the level of spirits, as never happened before, so much so that it is described in the book of the Apocalypse.
