One, the perennial enemy of God’s children, and to consecrate us in truth. Just like him, we have all come from God’s creative love into the world, through which we journey amidst daily struggles and battles with the Evil One, and we must prepare to return to the Father, when our time on earth is up. We must live with the constant awareness that we are not of the world and must not drown ourselves with the seeming permanence of the allurements of the world. Like Jesus, we must be sworn to the truth, to which we are consecrated, if his destiny would be ours as well. Fortunately, as he told us, he is the Way, the Truth and the Life. We need not look beyond him. Let us take a cue from him in every respect; our victory over the Evil One, from whom he sought the Father’s protection for us, will be assured. We repeat the same intention each time we pray the Lord’s Prayer and say: “deliver us from every evil.”

Spirit of knowledge and fear of the Lord; deliver us from the Evil One. Amen.
