Paragraph 2853

2853. Victory over the “prince of this world”169was won once for all at the Hour when Jesus freely gave himself up to death to give us his life. This is the judgment of this world, and the prince of this world is “cast out.”170“He pursued the woman”171but had no hold on her: the new Eve, “full of grace” of the Holy Spirit, is preserved from sin and the corruption of death (the Immaculate Conception and the Assumption of the Most Holy Mother of God, Mary, ever virgin). “Then the dragon was angry with the woman, and went off to make war on the rest of her offspring.”172Therefore the Spirit and the Church pray: “Come, Lord Jesus,”173since his coming will deliver us from the Evil One.
