Satan, demons, and the Name of Jesus (part 2)

I received a positive response on my blog “Removing the Name of Jesus” so here’s a couple quotes I came across this morning that are related.

I came across it in the Manual for Spiritual Warfare from TAN publications. This isn’t an online source because I’m old school (even though I contribute to the online world). Anyways, there’s a section called Victory in the Name of Jesus. Today, we’re going to look at 2 quotes from that section about using the name of Jesus to fight Satan and the demons.  Here’s the first:

“By invoking the name of Jesus Christ, who was crucified under Pontius Pilate, Satan is driven out of men.” -Saint Irenaeus

Notice, by the way, that St. Irenaeus said Jesus Christ and not just Christ like we do in the contemporary version of the Grace Before Meals. For more on this, see Part 1 in:

And for our second quote:

With the Name of Jesus we shall overcome the demons; we shall put them to flight. With this name, though they may sometimes dare to attack us, our battles will be victories, and our victories will be crowns for heaven, all brilliant with precious stones.” -Saint John Vianney.

St. Irenaeus, pray for us.
St. John Vianney, pray for us.

Going old school,
Mike Panlilio
