READ THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR Wisdom 7-10
In the Ignatian Discernment of Spirits, we are warned to be careful about attributing something to the bad spirit or good spirit. But St. Ignatius is quick to say that while the bad spirit may disguise itself to be a good spirit, the bad spirit can never produce anything good. Only the good spirit may yield something good always.
Satan is not only the Prince of Darkness; he is also the Father of lies. He has the ability to disguise himself and appear good in the outside. He can certainly be a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Come to think of it, how can Satan attract people to himself if he shows himself disgusting and evil? While he does sometimes reveal himself in his real monstrous appearance, more often than not his manifestations are subtle and even enticing. He is the master of deception, is he not?
We must be vigilant. Grapes do not grow in thorn bushes. Fr. Bobby T.
REFLECTION QUESTION: Do I discern what spirit governs my life each day?
Father, ignite the presence of the Holy Spirit in us so that He may help us discern what is good and what is evil, what is true and what is false, what is godly and what is mundane. May the fire of the Holy Spirit within us keep us vigilant and by His power may we never be led astray from the way of Jesus Christ, Your Son and our Lord, now and forever. Amen.
St. Cyril of Alexandria, bishop confessor, pray for us.
