There is a story told, a legend perhaps, about St. Theresa of Avila.

One day the devil appeared to her, disguised as Christ.

Theresa wasn't fooled for even a second. She immediately dismissed him.

Before leaving, however, the devil asked her: "How did you know? How could you be so sure I wasn't Christ?"

Her answer: "You didn't have any wounds! Christ has wounds."

Whether literally true or not, that's a powerful statement.
