"I do not fear Satan half so much as I fear those who fear him"

Saint Teresa of Avila

I am happy I came across this quote of Saint Teresa of Avila
We are not to fear the devil. We fight him by talking of and with God.

“It is good that we sometimes suffer contradictions, and that men have an evil and imperfect opinion for us even when we do and mean what is good.
. For these things help us to be humble, and keep  us from vain-glory. For then we  better seek s God as a witness to our conscience when outwardly we are despised by men and we are not believed.”

The Imitation of Christ
Chapter XII
 Of the uses of adversity

'The devil tries to soil and defile every good thing a man would do by intermingling with it his own seeds in the form of self-esteem, presumption, complaint, and other things of this kind, so that what we do is not done for God alone, or with a glad heart. Abel offered a sacrifice to God of the fat and firstlings of his flock, while Cain offered gifts of the fruits of the earth, but not of the firstfruits; and that is why God looked with favor on Abel's sacrifices, but paid no attention to Cain's gifts (cf. Gen. 4:3-5). This shows us that it is possible to do something good in the wrong way - that is to say, to do it negligently, or scornfully, or else not for God's sake but for some other purpose; and for this reason it is unacceptable to God.'

St. Symeon Metaphrastis

Remember we have to do things for God's sake, with a pure intention! And we have to pray for it, and pray for the work! And be thankful!

So that was why Cain's sacrifice was rejected. I often wondered why. Sad
Everything we do should be done only and only for God's sake. No other reason is worthy. crucifix

Too true!

Sirach is a treasure of wisdom.
I wonder why it took me so long to discover it!

"The mind of fools is in their mouths,
but the mouth of the wise is in their mind."
Sirach 21: 26

It is worth noting that Abba Macarius was granted a vision of the spiritual war raging for the soul of the young man.
The vision of " the angel of the Lord circling round about him with a fiery sword, chasing the demons far from him"; this is helpful and comforting to hold on to at times of trial.
