Beware of this Lie from the Devil – Sep 04 – Homily – Fr Matthias
In the homily for the memorial of St. Rose of Viterbo (Virgin, Sep 04, 2019 - Wednesday 22nd Week of Ordinary Time). Father observes the Gospel distinction between Jesus'miraculous healings and the casting out of demons. One of the first lies the devil tries to make a person believe (especially the pious) is that he is behind something which is not actually being caused by him. If a person falls for this lie, he will never address the real cause of his problems.
Not all evils are caused directly by demonic action. Acknowledging personal responsibility for one’s own sins is an indispensable step in the liberation process that no exorcism or deliverance prayer can substitute, when demonic oppression is not at the root of personal vice.
