Writer's Wednesday -- St. Louis Mary de Montfort

The most terrible of all the enemies which God has set up against the devil is His holy Mother Mary...

Satan, being proud, suffers infinitely more from being beaten and punished by a little and humble handmaid of God, and her humility humbles him more than divine powers... the devils fear one of her sighs for a soul more than the prayers of all the saints, and one of her threats against them more than all other torments.

What Lucifer has lost by pride, Mary gained by humility. What Eve had damned and lost by disobedience, Mary has saved by obedience...

The humble Mary will always have the victory over that proud spirit, and so great a victory that she will go so far as to crush his head, where his pride dwells.

-----St. Louis de Montfort, True Devotion to Mary.
