“The Devil fears the Virgin Mary more, not only than men and angels but, in a certain sense, than God himself.”

I highly doubt the devil fears Mary more than God!

God is superior to Mary.

I hope you are being sarcastic ... .

Dear Friend,read the rest of the quote from Father Malachi Martin-an exorcist...
From Fr Martin
“...It is not that the wrath, the power and the hatred of God are not infinitely greater than those of the Blessed Virgin”

I think the idea is that a humble human being followed God when she was told that she was to carry the saviour. And showed nothing but faith. The devil you remember in the fall of mankind from the garden really thought he had in the bag for the dominion of the world. I don’t think he figured on her being that faithful. Remember we are free to choose. Being a free moral agent, if not God would of been a tryant. We would have been human robots with no choose. So Mary filled all the requirements with total faith and choice. Imagine if you were a woman and told that you are going to have the Saviour. Then your going to be calm cool and humble, nobody but her to go thru this until God saw the right woman at the right time in history. And the hate the evil one has for the one that got away! Insane hate. Remember the first sin was pride. Angel pride. To think a humble woman obeyed to help bear the Only Saviour. A mere human in his eyes not a God or good angel. Insane Hate Indeed. Defeated by a female handmaiden of the lord. Also remember he turned the first woman Eve. But not the 2nd Eve. No thats because Mary was the Woman in Genesis 3:15-I will put ENMITY{ a state of deep ill will and hate} between YOU and THE WOMAN{note singular noun}, and between your seed and her SEED; HE shall bruise your head,and you shall bruise his heel.” And for that I’m eternally grateful! AMEN- PRAISE JESUS AND HAIL MARY INDEED!!! And that is why Mary is the Greatest woman of all time!!!!
