Heard in Church This Morning

Father's homily today was on Jesus healing those who were afflicted with evil spirits, and on how Satan can still affect us today--that demons still have power, and that God ultimately has power over the demons. He reminded us that several times a year we renew our baptismal promises as a community, and that the very first question in the rite of renewal is: "Do you reject Satan, and all his works, and all his empty promises?"

Just at that moment, a toddler in the front row called out, "YEAH!"

And for a more intensive treatment of this subject, I direct you to a must-read at Catholic Fire.
