Pope's Angelus: The devil is too clever. Don't talk to him

2014-03-10

Sun and even heat welcomed the thousands of pilgrims who came to St. Peter's on Sunday. In the first Angelus of Lent, Pope Francis talked about temptation. In particular, the moment when Jesus is tempted by the devil.

He emphasized that Jesus teaches how to overcome Satan and his ways. The first thing is always taking refuge in the Word of God.

POPE FRANCIS
"Note how well Jesus answers: He doesn't dialogue with Satan, like Eve did in paradise. Jesus understands that one can't dialogue with Satan, because he is so clever!

The Pope added that Lent is the best moment to begin a conversion, giving up any form of idolatry and material desires.

POPE FRANCIS
"It strengthens us, and gives us support in the fight against a worldly mentality that limits human beings to our most basic needs, making it easy to loose the hunger of all that is true, good and beautiful, including the hunger of God and His love.”

Pope Francis asked pilgrims to pray for his week of spiritual exercises. A few hours later, he along with some members of the Roman Curia, left to Ariccia, where they will be on retreat until Friday.
