Satan’s Control

“Satan does not control us with  fang marks on the flesh, but with lies in the heart.” -Tim Keller

Words Are Like Feathers…

“A woman confesses to a priest that she has told a malicious lie about another person. ‘Well,’ says the priest, ‘here is your penance. Go to the top of your building with a feather pillow, slit it open with a knife, and throw all the feathers into the wind.’ The next week the woman returns to the confessional. ‘Did you do what I asked,’ says the priest. ‘Yes,’ she says. ‘Now,’ he says, ‘go back and pick up all the feathers.’ ‘Oh, but I can’t,’ she says. ‘By now they’re everywhere!’ ‘And so are your lies,’ says the priest.” -Father James Martin
