Slaying Dragons - Second Edition - Preview #7: St. Louis de Montfort on Humility

St. Louis de Montfort, in his book “True Devotion,” speaks about the central importance of the virtue of humility in securing grace and resisting the devil.   From my book Slaying Dragons: What Exorcists See & What We Should Know:
He says, “The evil spirits, cunning thieves that they are, can take us by surprise and rob us of all we possess. They are watching day and night for the right moment. They roam incessantly seeking to devour us and to snatch from us in one brief moment of sin all the grace and merit we have taken years to acquire. Their malice and their experience, their cunning and their numbers ought to make us ever fearful of such a misfortune happening to us.”
Let us never think too much of ourselves.  Pride, as exorcists remind us, is a mortal sin which not only opens us to diabolical influence, but will separate us from the love of God. This grave sin is one of the ways that the demons subtly wear us down until we no longer resist their advances against us.
