St. John Bosco's Advice for Conquering the Devil

"Do you want the Lord to give you many graces?
Visit Him often.
Do you want Him to give you few graces?
Visit Him rarely.
Do you want the devil to attack you?
Visit Jesus rarely in the Blessed Sacrament.
Do you want him to flee from you? Visit Jesus often.
Do you want to conquer the devil?
Take refuge often at the feet of Jesus.
Do you want to be conquered by the devil?
Forget about visiting Jesus.
My dear ones,
the visit to the Blessed Sacrament
is an extremely necessary way to conquer the devil.
Therefore, go often to visit Jesus
and the devil will not come out victorious against you."

~ St John Bosco, from Jesus Our Eucharistic Love by Fr. Stefano Manelli  ~
