The most powerful means of defense

The spirits of evil try to enslave us, so that we become tied to certain people or things, in order to prevent our hearts from going out to God --- the Source of life and love.  For they know that if our hearts unite with Him, then they cannot come close to us.  The man who is given Grace, and who is united with God's love, is also protected by this Divine love; and the evil spirits cannot come close to him.  Love is the most powerful means of defense there is.  There are no weapons - and no power - that can measure themselves against love.  Everything is defeated before love.
