A monk went to Aboot Goeschel and asked, "Father, tell me how I can protect my soul from the snares of the devil."
Withour a word, Abbot Goeschel lit a candle and told him, "Put your hand over the flame."
"Oh, no, Father," said the monk. "The flame is so hot that it would burn my fingers."
"Anyone who wishes to be unconquered by evil must first enkindle the flame of love in one's heart," the abbot said. The devil cannot touch a soul that ia afire with love."
