    The Light of That Love

    In his book The Screwtape Letters,
    C.S. Lewis takes a humorous yet insightful look at the way the Devil likes to work on us.  The book consists of a series of fantastical letters from a “senior” demon (Screwtape) to his nephew (Wormwood), who is a junior Tempter.  Wormwood has been assigned a “client”—someone like you or me—whom he is supposed to misdirect, so that the person ends up turning from God and goes
    you-know-where!  Screwtape never uses the name “God.”  He refers only to “the Enemy.”
               
    In the course of the letters, we can see ourselves and how our own weaknesses could open a path for the Devil.  We also can catch a glimpse of the hatred Satan bears us.  At one point, Screwtape laments that “the Enemy actually LOVES the creatures!”  It is very apparent that Screwtape feels just the opposite.   But C.S. Lewis also shows us the ways of God. 

    In the St. Michael prayer, we ask that Michael “be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.”  The Screwtape Letters is a brilliant reflection on the wickedness of the Devil and the form his snares can take. The book shows how the Devil twists the truth and plays on our weaknesses.  Lewis has a wonderful ability of enabling us to recognize and acknowledge those weaknesses and leads us to trust in and lean on God.  The battle is in and for our hearts and souls.  We call on Saint Michael to protect us.  In Michael’s hands, the “sword” or “spear” of God’s Love – the one weapon Satan cannot withstand – can protect us and defeat the Devil.  The light of that Love leads us beyond our human frailties to God.

     
    Peace and love,
