The Demon of Lust

They said of Sarah that the demon of lust was attacking her threateningly, tempting her with vain thoughts of the world. She continued in the fear of God and maintained the rigor of her fasting.

Once, when she climbed up on the roof to pray, the spirit of lust appeared to her in bodily form and said to her, "You have overcome me, Sarah."

But, she replied, "It is not I who have overcome you, but my Lord Christ."
