Unseen Warfare

You don’t see how, with every prayer you utter, many demons fall and turn back. You only see how much you are wounded. Know that they also are being beaten and flee. Each time we show patience they flee in leaps; and with each prayer they are seriously wounded. So, in the time of war, don’t expect that while you are firing bullets and cannonballs that they will retaliate with Turkish Delight and chocolates!
 

Blessed Elder Joseph the Hesychast  (+1959)
