Meditations by Padre Pio

The filed of contest between God and Satan, is the human soul. This contest takes place every moment of our lives. The soul must give free access to our Lord, and be completely fortified by Him with every kind of weapon. His light should shine in the soul, in order to combat our tenebrous errors; the soul should be adorned by Jesus with His truth and justice, with the shield of faith, with the word of God, in order to overcome so potent an enemy. In order to be adorned by Jesus Christ, we must die to ourselves.
