“Discernment of Spirits: Rule 2”

St. Ignatius’ Rules of Discernment #2 describes the movements of the good spirit and the enemy in the heart of someone pursuing holiness. Rachel recalls a time when the enemy challenged her identity while she was pursuing holiness. She didn’t recognize the Rules at work during this time, but now is able to see how the enemy distorts something as beautiful as going to Mass.
