Many people blame the devil or their neighbor when they fall into sin or are offended. But that is not right. Everyone has their own enemy in their power and this enemy is our lower nature which leads us into sin. Blessed are they who keeps this enemy a prisoner under their control and protects themselves against it. As long as they do this no other enemy, visible or invisible, can harm them.
Saint Francis of Assisi
