Men of Rome, You Who Are Vested in Purple and Red, Hear Ye!

"... [B]rethren, be strengthened in the Lord, and in the might of his power. Put you on the armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the deceits of the devil. For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places. 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. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of justice, And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace: In all things taking the shield of faith, wherewith you may be able to extinguish all the fiery darts of the most wicked one. And take unto you the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit (which is the word of God)."

Paul of Tarsus

Why 'Francis, Marx & Kasper LLC' Will Not Win the 2015 Synod...

Statue of Archangel Michael slaying Satan represented as a dragon. University of Bonn, Germany. 
It may not need to be said at all, but it certainly needs to be remembered and repeated (all emphasis and formatting is mine):

"The Venerable Pio Brunone Lanteri, who was also a great defender of the papacy, explained it clearly in his book: “I will be told that the Holy Father can do anything, "quodcumque solveris, quodcumque ligaveris etc.”. It’s true, but he can do nothing against the Divine Constitution of the Church;
he is the Vicar of God,

but he is not God,

nor can he destroy the work of God”."

[Original article at Rorate Caeli here]

And lest we also forget, there is always this very much applicable companion quote from St. Michael the Archangel: "Quis ut Deus?"
