“This prayer is based on the words of the holiest woman of all time, but also of the most powerful human person. The Devil is afraid of Mary because she is the Theotokos, or God-bearer, who brought our savior into the world.

To be clear: the rosary is a weapon. It is a weapon that dispels the powers of darkness. Most Americans will laugh at this language. Meanwhile, when we watch the evening news or read the newspaper accounts of the multitude of evil actions we will be moved to say, “how can this be…what a horrible thing!”

We know that evil is real. We encounter its many forms (little and small) in our everyday lives. Catholics understand this as the absence of the good. The Devil promotes evil because he radically chose himself over God and desires to tear down humanity by convincing them to do the same. Rejecting God means denying the good and separating oneself from Him.”

Thomas Griffin is the chairperson of the religion department at a Catholic high school on Long Island where he lives with his wife and son. He has a masters degree in theology and is the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Empty Tomb Project: The Magazine. He writes for several media outlets.
