Phenomenon of Satanism in Contemporary Society

The article on this topic and which is linked below was originally published in the official Vatican newspaper.

Saddening. :sad_yes:

Thank you for that article.

I was thinking about how our culture has moved towards making jokes about the devil. Joking about the devil, in turn, enforces the idea that he does not exist. Some people have even said that he is a figment of one’s imagination. These are some of the reasons why we are seeing so many troubling situations in the news, and even in the microcosm of our daily lives.

Heavenly Father, You are the light, and You are our champion. Thank You Lord for defeating the enemy for us. Thank You Lord for stamping out the serpent that plans to destroy our lives. Thank You Lord for campioning our cause, being our light, and blessing us all with the presence of Your Holy Spirit ----- now and always. Amen.
