So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

What would you do if you were the devil? You would... .


... attempt to subvert the Church from within. You'd attack the faithful. No, not those badly behaved buffet-buffoons who buy into everything bogus, those misguided minions masquerading as Catholics. The Cafeteria-types, so-called "progressives" (the self righteous), the personally-opposed-to-but-publicly-pro-abortion, and other pretenders... they are already yours. Why waste time and energy on those who are already firmly in the grip of, shall we say, evil?

Just remember to convince people that their feelings matter more than anything else, even more than the health and well being of a loved one. Convince them that they are entitled to feel good about themselves no matter the cost. It helps to (mis)use sexual pleasure as a selling point. One man's (violent) abuse (of another) is another man's pleasure. You, the devil, can take that thought to the bank.

Ooo, and for that extra kick in the groin, you'd get non-Catholic "christians"—you know, those folk who are conformed to the World-church ideology (pro-death; pro sexual license; pro divorce; pro historical revisionism; pro relativism; pro anything-but-the-Truth)—to attack Church doctrine taught by the Apostles. Isn't it amazing how bigotry can be sold as liberal religion, or secular religion, or... whatever?

In fact, you'd have your best buddies, the Spirit-of-Vatican-II cradle Catholics and their media allies, attack those annoying Tradition-loving Catholics, the Catholics who get in your way by actually keeping the commandments of You-Know-Who. What's up with that?! Don't they realize your way is so much easier? At least JFK thought so, as do Pelosi, Biden and others. You'd think for sure that all the damage you did to catechesis during the 1970s and '80s would have thoroughly confused the heck out of them all. There are always a few stubborn... saints (choke)... who manage to gum up the works. Dang it!

Just for fun, attack the faithful by getting them all worked up about things beyond their control. Try to distract them from prayer. You do not want them to think for a moment that You-Know-Who (YKW) is in charge and that YKW hears their prayers. If they start praying, you're done for!

Furthermore, your'd turn the definition of Christian on its head by convincing low-information Catholics that it's so much nicer and merciful (and less rigid!) when (c)atholics knowingly (obstinately) living in mortal sin are permitted to receive Holy Communion and thus profane the Body and Blood of YKW.

In brief, if you were the devil, you'd pit Catholic against Catholic.

Oh, and you'd do that thing where you confuse what's-his-face's teaching again! That's been fairly profitable the last couple of years.

Crux sacra sit mihi lux
Non draco sit mihi dux
Vade retro satana
Numquam suade mihi vana
Sunt mala quae libas
Ipse venena bibas

Wake up, folks! The devil is prowling the earth like a roaring lion seeking the ruin of souls (1 Peter 5:8). Do not give him your cooperation.

Saint Michael, protector of the Church: pray for us.
