Vade Retro Satana

We're in a spiritual war, a combat between good and evil, light v. dark, God versus the Devil. So arm yourself for the fight but remember, you're facing demons. This is useful, from St. Benedict:

Crux sacra sit mihi lux 
Nunquam draco sit mihi dux 
Vade retro Satana 
Nunquam suade mihi vana 
Sunt mala quae libas. 
Ipse venena bibas.

Meaning (my translation):

The holy Cross shall be my light 
The dragon shall never lead me 
Get thee behind me Satan! 
Never tempt me to vanity 
You offer wickedness 
Drink your own poison.

Of course the Latin is better. Use it, a minor exorcism, but be prepared to draw fire down upon your position if and when you do. I don't say that lightly.

We fight against principalities and powers,

They certainly do drink their own poison.

Don't they just, LL. Bizarre to watch it play out in real time, eh?

Nice words Suitcase, but Biden used them first, and far far more appropriately.

It's an exorcism, GL.
