"Defeat satan with the Rosary in your hand"
Yesterday, Vicka, Marija and Ivan were present at the apparition they prayed the Our father, Hail Mary, Glory Be. At the second Our Father they knelt down, and the apparition lasted five minutes. In yesterday’s message Our Lady invites us to fight against satan with prayer and said, “Satan now knows you know he is active. Pray and defeat him with prayer, with the Rosary in your hands.” For the last month, in nearly every message, Our Lady has been repeating, “Beware of satan!” and a theologian said, ‘The safest strategy of satan is when people say he does not exist and does not operate. When he is hidden he is capable of everything.’
But Our Lady has discovered him and therefore you can say he is angry and wants to act even more. But one need not be afraid of satan. Our Lady once told us, “With fervent prayer, with humble love one can easily disarm him.” , and promised She would protect us. In any case, if we stick to this path of faith, prayer and fasting, the Lord’s project with us will triumph. His project is universal and personal.
If I allow sin to destroy my peace, my love, satan has already succeeded in destroying part of the Lord’s projects, as the Lord wants us all to be saved. And so here is a strong invitation to pray, fast and abandon ourselves in faith.
(Fr. Slavko Barbaric 9th August 1985)
