The Mystical Body of the Devil
Today, we see Popes greeting voodoo “high priests” and visiting synagogues.Progressivism has silenced talk about the Devil and his cohorts. No one is considered evil any longer, people only have bad information… In this atmosphere of radical tolerance with all kinds of evil, it seems opportune to remind our readers of Catholic doctrine on the mystical body of the Devil.
St. Thomas Aquinas
There are two mystical bodies in this world: The Mystical Body of Christ and the mystical body of the Devil or of the Antichrist. To one or another every man belongs. The Mystical Body of Christ is the Holy Church, His pure and faithful Spouse …. The mystical body of the Devil is the ensemble of impious men. Like an adulterous wet nurse, it nourishes this ensemble. The Devil is its head, and the evil persons are its members …. “The body of the Devil,” says St. Gregory, “is composed by all the impious men.”
Just as Christ, in Himself and through His disciples, always seeks to cut off the members of the Devil and incorporate them to Himself .… so also does the Devil. By his efforts and those of his cohorts, the Devil aims to amputate the members of Christ to unite them to the sordid members of his prostitute ….
“Know you not, that your bodies are the members of Christ? Shall I, then, taking the members of Christ, make them the members of a harlot?” (1Cor 6:15) And St. Paul answers: “God forbid.”
St. Augustine writes: “They cannot be at the same time members of Christ and members of a prostitute. Many receive the Body of Christ in the Sacrament, but not in their souls. By failing to receive Christ spiritually and leading bad lives, they reduce the members of Christ, making themselves members of the Devil, so they greatly diminish the Body of Christ.”
(St. Thomas Aquinas, De venerabile Sacramenti Altaris, Marietti, 1931, p. 114)
