There is no neutral ground in the universe; every square inch,
every split second, is claimed by God and counter-claimed by Satan.
(a defaced statue of Christopher Columbus in southern California / AP)
“Who is Lucifer?
He is a pure spirit, and was the most enlightened of all pure spirits,
but is now at war with God and with His rule.
The mystery of sin is merely the result of this conflict,
which manifests itself in every possible way.
Lucifer, as much as in him lies, will leave no stone unturned to destroy what
God has made and ordered.
Wherever he enters, there is the work of God defaced.”
Jean-Pierre de Caussade, p. 114
