Story of the replies of three Monks, when asked by the Devil what they will do if he gives them the power to change the past

STORY OF THE REPLIES OF THREE MONKS, WHEN ASKED BY THE DEVIL WHAT THEY WILL DO IF HE GIVES THEM THE POWER TO CHANGE THE PAST


The Devil appeared to three Monks, asking them: if I gave you power to change something from the past, what would you change?

The first Monk, with great apostolic fervor replied: "I would prevent you from making Adam and Eve fall into sin so that humanity could not turn away from God."

The second Monk, a merciful one, said to him: "I would prevent you from God and you will condemn yourself eternally".

The third Monk is a simple man. When asked by the Devil, instead of answering the tempter, he went down on his knees, made the sign of the cross and prayed: "Lord, free me from the temptation of what could be and was not".

The devil, giving a loud cry, trembled with pain and vanished.

The other two, surprised, said to him: "Brother, why have you responded like this?"

He replied:
First - we must never dialogue with the Devil.
Second - Nobody in the world has the power to change the past.
Third - Satan's interest is not to prove our virtue, but to trap us in the past, so that we neglect the present, the only time God gives us His grace and we can cooperate with Him to fulfill His will."

Of all the Demons, the one that enslave most men and prevents them from being happy is that of "What could have been and was not".

The past is left to the mercy of God and
the future to his Providence. Only the present is in our hands. "Live in the moment"
