Over the last couple of months I have noticed that some people have been leaving comments in the combox promoting and advertising occult practices, including the casting of spells to achieve various ends. Whether these comments are generated by a system which leaves them automatically on blogs or by individuals I do not know, but these comments are not welcome, and I advise those tempted to leave them to refrain from doing so. As soon as they are detected they are deleted.
Regular readers of this blog will know that such practices are dangerous, deeply sinful and contrary to the Christian faith. I would ask you, dear readers, to be vigilante, as some of you have been. Some of you have even gone to the trouble to ring me to tell me such advertisements and comments have just been posted, and for that I am most grateful.
May the Lord protect us from such evil, and let us remember in our prayers those who engage in such practices: may they be brought to their senses and delivered from them.
St Michael the archangel, defend us in the hour of conflict, be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil: may God restrain him, we humbly pray. And do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust Satan down to hell and with him all the wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
