Monday Pope Francis gave a homily at daily masses whose main points should be taken to heart by every Christian in general and Catholic in particular:

Beware, the Pope warned, of the devil’s seduction.

“The devil is a seducer,” Francis reminded, saying, he “knows what words to tell us” and this is dangerous as “we like to be seduced.”

“He has this ability; this ability to seduce. This is why it is so difficult to understand that he is a loser, because he presents himself with great power, promises you many things, brings you gifts – beautiful, well wrapped – -‘Oh, how nice!’ – but you do not know what’s inside – ‘But, the card outside is beautiful.’ The package seduces us without letting us see what’s inside. He can present his proposals to our vanity, to our curiosity.”

His light, Francis said, is dazzling, but it vanishes.

More importantly he advises not having a dialog with him

Do not converse with the devil

Finally, we must be careful not to dialogue with the devil as Eve did. Jesus does not dialogue in the desert, but rather responds with the Word of God. He hunts the demons, sometimes he asks for his name but does not make a dialogue with them.

And gives first rate advice on what to do when confronted by this enemy:

in the end, go to the mother, like children. When the children are afraid, they go to the mother: ‘Mom, mom … I’m scared!’ When they have dreams … they go to their mothers.

“Go to the Madonna; she guards us. And the Fathers of the Church, especially the Russian mystics, say: in the time of spiritual turmoil, take refuge under the mantle of the great Mother of God. Go to the Mother. May she help us in this fight against the defeated, against the chained dog to win it.”

Pope Francis concluded, urging us always to seek refuge in the Mother of God.

And offers this prayer

As I said when I announced my three days of fasting and prayer for the Church while this pope has been a mediocre one at best one of the best things about him has been his constant reminders that the Devil is real, cunning and needs to be resisted.

I turned on CNN to hear what they would have to say after the President’s speech on the Iran deal.  They insisted that pulling out of the Iran deal didn’t make us more safe, that it would cause division among the allies and that it would make the world less safe.  It was amazing to watch and see, particular Christiane Amanpour who never seems to see standing up to enemies of America as anything but a disaster.

Let me remind all of those people of something that I tweeted out during their coverage:

A reminder to viewers the same people saying pulling out of the doesn’t make us safer said actions would make war in more likely

It’s worth noting that the President made it a point to answer questions concerning the Secretary of State about to land in North Korea within the hour before leaving. This reminded every single viewer on CNN and MSNBC and every other network that chooses to spin this as a disaster, that these same people were insisting that Donald Trump was going to lead us to nuclear war on the Korean peninsular.

Under Donald Trump America is leading and the narratives of our enemies, the media and the left all seem to be hardest hit and the fact that the media and the left have the same reaction as our enemies to this leadership is not a coincidence.

Update: Boy it didn’t take long for Donald Trump to prove my point did it?
