Nightmares

I woke up to nightmares and because I spent last night (pre-bedtime) spending time with the BVM, I knew exactly what to say to those demonic influences…

“In the name of Jesus Christ, I bind the spirit of [name of spirit] and send you to the foot of the Cross to be judged by Our Lord.” I repeated this as many times as necessary.

One spirit, whom I could not name, lingered, and I gave it a withering reminder:

“I am a child of the Most High God. I have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. I walk in a state of grace. You have no power here save what the Father gives for correction because He loves me and desires me to be closer to Him. I am beloved by my Mother, and she has already crushed your head so that I may walk securely.”

Did you know? Demons don’t like being reminded about Mary. They hate her.

The Rosary has been compared to a rope that when you pray it, you tie yourself with Mary at Golgotha, transfixed, to the foot of the Cross. Let us be unwavering in our devotion and grow more strongly in love, for Our Lord, for His Mother, and for each other. Thank God for His goodness, and for Mary’s faithfulness and example. And may you be encouraged to remind those demons just exactly where they belong.
