Rome's head exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth explains why Satan hates Mary so much

Father Gabriele Amorth, exorcist of the Diocese of Rome for the past 21 years, priest of the Society of Saint Paul, and specialist in the figure of Mary, assures us that the devil is terrified of the Mother of Jesus Christ because she crushes his head. "On one occasion an exorcist friend of mine asked the devil what most hurts him about Our Lady, what most annoys him. He responded, 'That she is the purest of all creatures and that I am the filthiest; that she is the most obedient of all creatures and that I am the most rebellious; that she is the one who committed no sin and thus always conquers me.'"

Father Amorth affirmed that on some occasions God forces the prince of lies to tell the truth, however, the devil's main struggle is to make man fall into sin. "To lead man towards evil is to make him fall into sin; this is the devil's preferred activity and we are all subject to it from our birth until our death." According to Father Amorth, Mary is a key figure in the fight against evil, weakness and sin. She herself was tempted: "Mariology is my field and I have often been asked if Mary was tempted by the devil. Definitely. When? From her birth until her death. But she always triumphed.
