Satan is always at work
breeding sadness and anxiety.

He imposes obstacles
that hinder souls from
making spiritual progress.

How can we defend ourselves?
How can we fight back?

In this concise yet powerful
book, author Dan Burke distills
the venerable, time-tested wisdom
of St. Ignatius of Loyola into
a spiritual ball of fire.

You will learn to understand the
influence of the Enemy on your
mind and heart, and the tactics
you need to combat him.

With St. Ignatius as his guide,
Burke presents an indispensable,
authoritative manual for engaging in daily
battle with the Adversary—combat that is
both inevitable and winnable.

Burke will help you recognize
the ebbs and flows of consolation
and desolation, and distinguish
between the voices of God
and of Satan.

Best of all, you’ll come to see
the spiritual life not as a science to
be learned, but as an intuitive art to be
as you move with increasing
success from habitual sin
to sanctity.

The battle for our
souls is unavoidable. So
be sure to prepare for
the battle.

Burke shows what the saints
all recognized: that we become
stronger through battle and grow
weaker from avoidance.

So grow in strength and
contentment as you learn:


  • How to take captive every negative thought and make it obedient to Christ
  • St. Ignatius’s revelations exposing how the Devil seeks to influence us
  • The Paradigm of Ascent and the Five Steps to Sanctity
  • The three ways you can discern “Good Spirits” from “Bad Spirits”
  • The three principal causes of desolation—and what you must do when it afflicts your soul
  • Proven methods for moving away from sin and toward self-giving love of God and neighbor
