    Dear Sisters and Brothers,

    According to Popes and exorcists, the devil fears the Blessed Mother.

    One of the surest ways of combatting the devil is by developing a close relation-

    ship with the Blessed Virgin Mary. The devil hates her and runs away from those

    who are close to her.

    According to Italian exorcist Fr. Sante Babolin, “while I was insistently invoking

    the Most Holy Virgin Mary, the devil answered me: ‘I can’t stand That One

    (Mary) any more and neither can I stand you any more.'”

    Furthermore, he discovered that “‘the strongest reactions’ of the devil during the

    exorcism occur ‘when references are made to her apparitions.'” Therefore, Ba-

    bolin frequently invokes the Virgin Mary under her titles of “Lourdes, Fatima or

    Guadalupe.”

    Famed exorcist Fr. Gabriele Amorth confirmed this reality in his dialogues with

    the devil, where the devil said to him, “I am more afraid when you say the Ma-

    donna’s name, because I am more humiliated by being beaten by a simple crea-

    ture, than by Him.”

    Pope Francis related similar words in a homily at St. Mary Major, “Where the Ma-

    donna is at home the devil does not enter; where there is the Mother, disturbance

    does not prevail, fear does not win.”

    Why is the devil so afraid of the Virgin Mary, a simple girl from Nazareth?

    During the Rite of Exorcism the priest will pray, “The glorious Mother of God, the

    Virgin Mary, commands you; she who by her humility and from the first moment

    of her Immaculate Conception crushed your proud head.”

    This prayer is referring to a prophecy foretold in the book of Genesis, where God

    said to the serpent, “I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between

    your offspring and hers; he will strike your head, and you will strike his

    heel” (Genesis 3:15). The verse can also be translated as “she will strike your

    head,” and has traditionally been applied to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

    Her humility was so radical that it crushes the “proud head” of Satan and is the

    surest defense against him and his attacks. As the devil told Fr. Amorth, “She

    makes me angry because she is the humblest of all creatures, and because I am

    the proudest; because she is the purest of all creatures, and I am not; because, of

    all creatures, she is the most obedient to God, and I am a rebel!”

    Thus, if someone wants to defeat the work of evil in their own lives and the world,

    one of the strongest responses is to fly to the Virgin Mary. St. Padre Pio agreed

    with this when he said, “Some people are so foolish that they think they can go

    through life without the help of the Blessed Mother. Love the Madonna and pray

    the Rosary, for her Rosary is the weapon against the evils of the world today. All

    graces given by God pass through the Blessed Mother.”

    Pope Francis @Pontifex August 02

    The Lord does not perform wonders with those who

    believe themselves to be just, but with those who

    know they are in need and are willing to open their

    hearts to Him.

    Pope Francis @Pontifex August 4

    We pray for the sick who are abandoned and left

    to die. A society is human if it protects life, every

    life, from its beginning to its natural end, without

    choosing who is worthy to live or who is not. Doc-

    tors should serve life, not take it away..

    Pope Francis @Pontifex August 13

    Only when we experience God's forgiveness are we

    truly reborn. We start again from there, from for-

    giveness. It is there that we rediscover ourselves: in

    confessing our sins.

    Pope Francis @Pontifex August 16

    Let us ask Our Lady to protect and sustain us; that we

    may have a strong, joyful and merciful faith; that she

    may help us to be saints, to meet her one day in Para-

    dise.

    Pope Francis @Pontifex August 22

    May the Lord open our hearts to the needs of the

    poor, the defenseless, those who knock on our door

    to be recognized as a person.

    Pope Francis @Pontifex August 31

    In our daily relationship with Jesus, and in the

    strength of His forgiveness, we rediscover our

    roots.

    HOLY FATHER’S INTENTIONS FOR

    Feast Day: September 27 Canonized: June 16, 1737 Beatified: August 13, 1729 Born in 1581 in France, Vincent de Paul became a priest at the early age of 19. He became famous for his kindness and generosity. As a young priest, Vincent was captured by Turkish pirates at sea and sold into slavery. He eventually es- caped, along with his master, whom he had converted. He came into close contact with the king and queen of France in both spiritual and diplomatic roles, but even- tually his concern for the poor of France became his full-time work. Vincent went to many places to visit the sick, the el- derly, and the poor. He spent time with them and did what he could to take care of them. But Vincent knew it would take more than what he could do on his own to really make a difference. He realized he needed

    more money and more people to help all those who needed help. Vincent began to ask wealthy people to donate mon- ey that he distributed to the sick and poor of his com- munity. Vincent was so nice and charming that the wealthy didn't mind giving him money, especially for such a worthy cause. Once, Vincent asked Queen Anne of Austria for a do- nation. Anne knew of Vincent and respected him, but she didn't agree with many things he said. Vincent told Queen Anne that they should overlook their differences because helping people was more im- portant. Vincent also gathered other men and women who were willing to dedicate their lives to God and help the poor. Each day he and his followers gave soup and bread to as many as 16,000 poor persons. The men formed into the religious community of priests called the Vincentians. The women became the Daughters of Charity. Many parishes today have a St. Vincent de Paul Society which carries on Vincent's work with the poor. Because of all
