Virgo Potens is one of the titles of Our Lady and it means Virgin Most Powerful. Devotion to The Most Blessed Virgin under the title of Virgo Potens is especially efficacious in spiritual warfare. The Most Blessed Virgin Mary shall crush the head of Satan. In the Douay Rheims Bible, Genesis 3: 14-15 states:

“[14] And the Lord God said to the serpent: Because thou hast done this thing, thou art cursed among all cattle, and beasts of the earth: upon thy breast shalt thou go, and earth shalt thou eat all the days of thy life. [15] I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel.”

Life on earth is a continuous spiritual battle. In this war there is no neutral ground. Whether we are cognizant of it or not, each of us ultimately chooses a side either implicitly or explicitly. We are either citizens of what St. Augustine classifies as the City of God or of the City of Man. We are either for God or against Him, there is no in between. In this spiritual warfare we will be attacked. The deposit of faith equips us with the necessary weapons to vanquish the assaults of the evil one. The glorious Apostle St. Paul exhorts us to :

“11 Put you on the armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the deceits of the devil. 12 For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places. 13 Therefore take unto you the armour of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and to stand in all things perfect. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of justice, 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.

“16 In all things taking the shield of faith, wherewith you may be able to extinguish all the fiery darts of the most wicked one. 17 And take unto you the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit (which is the word of God). 18 By all prayer and supplication praying at all times in the spirit; and in the same watching with all instance and supplication for all the saints: 19 And for me, that speech may be given me, that I may open my mouth with confidence, to make known the mystery of the gospel. 20 For which I am an ambassador in a chain, so that therein I may be bold to speak according as I ought.” (Ephesians 6: 11-20 Douay-Rheims Translation)

The ancient dragon spews a flood of evil lies from his mouth in an attempt to drown mankind. Yet, be not afraid, for there is safe refuge within the ark of the Holy Catholic Church. The Lord established the Catholic Church and it is the Catholic Church which gave us Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition. The twin pillars of Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition compose The Sacred Deposit of FaIth whIch reveals all of the inerrant truths necessary for salvation. Cling to the authentic and unchanging teachings of Holy Mother Church to resist being swept away by the deluge sent forth from the Devil. Our Blessed Lord did not leave His Church unarmed against such a formidable enemy. He gives us Catholic weaponry forged with the power of Heaven. These powerful weapons include the Sacraments, sacramentals, the Three Theologic Virtues, The Word of God, prayer, fasting, penance and a powerful army of intercessors called the Saints. The triumphant army of Saints has The Virgin Most Powerful as their exalted Queen. Citizens of the City of God have as their foundation The Three Theological Virtues of Faith, Hope, and Charity. They trust in and are obedient to Jesus Christ, their Sovereign King.
