The Devil Is Real. Evil Exists. What Can We Do About It? In a Powerful New Book, Pope Francis Shows Us How We Can “Rebuke the Devil”

 
May 29, 2019

WASHINGTON—The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is releasing a commanding new book featuring a survey of Pope Francis’s important teachings on the history of the devil, his empty promises and works, and how we can actively combat him. Written for a wide audience, Rebuking the Devil shows us how to recognize the tricks of the enemy, avoid his traps and defeat his efforts through the power of God in Jesus Christ.  
Rebuking the Devil is available for purchase May 29 through the USCCB’s online bookstore and can be ordered at http://store.usccb.org/rebuking-the-devil-p/7-608.htm

While the text does affirm the reality of the devil, Pope Francis also offers wisdom in following God’s righteous laws and keeping our eyes fixed on the sovereignty of Jesus as we battle evil in our own lives and in the world.  

 “In this important book, Pope Francis tells us how to use powerful tools of spiritual combat against the devil including the Word of God, adoration of God in the Blessed Sacrament, participation in the Sacraments, fasting, prayer and the intercession of Mary, Mother of God, through the Most Holy Rosary,” said Bishop Michael F. Burbidge of Arlington, Chairman of the U.S. Bishop’s Committee on Communications. “We must recognize that there is a devil who is alive and active, but there is also a shield against him through the power of Jesus Christ!”

We are providing a PDF of the book cover as well as a link to the book cover here: http://www.usccb.org/about/marketing/products/images/7-608-rebuking-devil-book-cover.jpg
