Fr. Mark Goring: Do Not Fear the Devil

Did Saint Faustina fear the Devil?

  • No!
  • She had great faith that God loved her and would protect her.
  • She also knew that she was in a state of grace and had been obedient to God.

Should we fear the Devil?

  • It depends on the state of our soul.
  • If we sin and disobey God, we bind ourselves to the Devil, and we should fear him.
  • If we stay close to God, obey Him, and repent if we sin, then we do not need to fear the Devil.
