Demonsí snares


51. When the soul begins to enjoy the blessed tranquillity of the Holy Spirit, during nightly sleep or daily slumber, satan endeavors to implant into it his imaginary peace in the form of a pleasant feeling. If during this time the mind has preserved the warm memory of Lord Christís name, and takes advantage of this holy and glorious name as a weapon against the enemiesí enticements, then the sly deceiver would leave immediately. However, having suffered defeat, he consequently takes up arms against the God-loving person openly (not only in his thoughts). Thus the mind, in discerning the sly traps of the deceiver, progressively increases its comprehension of spiritual subjects.
