The picture. A great plain, comprising the entire Jerusalem district, where is the supreme Commander-in-Chief of the forces of good, Christ our Lord: another plain near Babylon, where Lucifer is, at the head of the enemy.
Spiritual Exercises, No. 138 (1548)
Imagine that leader of all the enemy, in that great plain of Babylon, sitting on a sort of throne of smoking flame, a horrible and terrifying sight. Watch him calling together countless devils, to despatch them into different cities till the whole world is covered, forgetting no province or locality, no class or single individual.Ignatius Of Loyola
We should always be prepared so as never to err to believe that what I see as white is black, if the hierarchic Church defines it thus.Ignatius Of Loyola
