The voice of Jesus commands the evil spirit and they obey him. We can speak in the name of Jesus by saying a prayer about evil. The prayer will sound like we are talking to the evil spirits but it is the voice of Jesus they hear. This is a very important distinction. It confuses some of the smartest people regardless of their religious training. The voice of Jesus is the authority of the Creator. He is the Word of God made flesh. He can and does speak through us. Another important distinction is that we are never to talk to the devil directly. That is a big mistake unless you are prepared to be in a direct relationship with the devil; because that is what happens when you talk to him. When we pray about evil, we are not talking to the devil; we are praying. Prayers are directed to God and his holy angel and saints. Do not give the devil power over you!
Parents: please know that many of your children have friends that know about Ouija Board. This is not a toy even though some stores sell it like a game. It is no game! It is a doorway to let the devil have power over you. The devil’s imagined defense would be: “You asked for it!” Those who have played with it need to confess a sin against the First Commandment that we adore the Lord alone. To give adoration to evil is a fool’s errand.
Whenever I say Mass, I like to conclude with the Saint Michael prayer. We have been praying it for a year now and I want to continue praying it. God has given St. Michael the power to defend the earth from evil. His protection will come if we ask for it. Remember we are always to give adoration to God alone. The voice of Jesus is the authority of the Creator. He is the Word of God made flesh. He can and does speak through us.
Sincerely in Christ,
Very Reverend Andrew Kemberling, V.F.
