It’s absolutely certain

26 June 2021

Of course, the evil spirits move us to wickedness but they don’t force us do it. If they could do so, there wouldn’t be anybody who hadn’t committed every kind of sin. But just as they have the ability to lead us to temptation, so we have the strength and freedom to reject it. It’s therefore absolutely certain that the demons have no power over us, except when we surrender our will to them.
