Georges Bernanos on the Hatred of Satan

By Peter Darcy | On Feb 23, 2015 | No Comments | In Faith and Virtue Quotes

There is in man a secret, incomprehensible hatred, not only of his fellowmen, but of himself. We can give this mysterious feeling whatever origin or explanation we want, but we must give it one. As far as we Christians are concerned, we believe that this hatred reflects another hatred, a thousand times more profound and lucid: the hatred of the ineffable spirit who was the most resplendent of all the luminaries of the abyss and who will never forgive us his cataclysmic fall.

~French Catholic writer, Georges Bernanos (1888-1948)
