Sun Tzu and the Art of War (against the devil)

In his famous text, "The Art of War," Sun Tzu advises that for success in war it is critically important to know, not only yourself, but also your enemies.  As Sun Tzu put it:

"It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle."

In the war for souls in which we are engaged, we are pitted against an intelligent adversary.  Courtesy of Msgr. Charles Pope, and Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, here is a short review of the characteristics of that adversary.
