Speaking to Catholic broadcaster TV2000 in December 2017, Francis said that "Satan is not a metaphor or a nebulous concept but a real person armed with dark powers."
“He always pretends to be polite - he does it with priests, with bishops. That's how he enters your mind."
"The Devil is more intelligent than mere mortals and should never be argued with," Pope Francis has warned.
“He is evil, he’s not like mist. He’s not a diffuse thing, he is a person. I’m convinced that one must never converse with Satan - if you do that, you’ll be lost,” he told TV2000.
