Fr. Mike Schmitz: The Devil’s Fall and Mary’s Rise

(View segment from :07 to 2:48)
What 2 things were the cause of Satan's fall?

  • His pride and disobedience.

If you want to be raised up like Mary, what 2 things do you need to do?

  • Be humble by having a modest estimate of your own worth (as a loved child of God), and by submitting yourself to God and your superiors. (cf. Catholic Encyclopedia)
  • Be obedient to God by seeking to do His Will in all things.
