The demons have the same deceit and goal when they work with thoughts or through men devoted to sensuousness and the world. The demons slander the monastic life calling it unnatural and impossible, by instilling these false concepts, they try to tame the ascetic's zeal, plunge them into negligence of salvation, drown them in the carnal life and in pleasing the passions.

The Holy Fathers set forth the very image of the soul's separation from the body and the circumstances accompanying it to edify and save us. Venerable Theodore the Studite says in the 3rd catechesis: Brethren! Will we stay here forever? No! No! Woe, brethren! What a terrible mystery of death! How we are supposed to always be attentive, full of repentance, judicious, thinking that now we will die, thinking how our soul will be separated from our body, how the Angels will come, not to mention coming of demons. And the demons come to those who are carried away by passions.
