Fr. Paul Nicholson on the nature of the demons

This priest has it going on.

Demons have the ability to identify our consent that appears in our lower faculties and bodies. If we are tempted by something, they can tell our level of consent.

They are compulsive. Repeated open doors on the part of the person are repeated opportunities.

Living in a state of grace and rich spiritual life is the most effective means to bind the demons from even coming near you.

The demonic world is not united or consistent in their campaign. They can turn obedience into chaos.

This is becoming so apparent to me as I get older. The odd thing is, it seems harder and harder to get a priest to spend more than 30 minutes hearing confessions. The other day Ilterally had to wait outside a sacristy because the priest was not in the confessional box at the appointed time. He was about to leave for the rectory when I asked him if he would hear confessions. Far from the first time I've had priests not show up for it either.

I don't get this. If you're a priest isn't this a major part of your work?
