Pope Francis’ 13 Warnings against Satan

These are Pope Francis’ thirteen (13) most popular warnings against the devil:


1) “When one does not profess Jesus Christ, one professes the worldliness of the devil."

First homily, 3/14/2013

2) “The Prince of this world, Satan, doesn’t want our holiness, he doesn’t want us to follow Christ. Maybe some of you might say: ‘But Father, how old fashioned you are to speak about the devil in the 21st century!’ But look out because the devil is present! The devil is here… even in the 21st century! And we mustn’t be naïve, right? We must learn from the Gospel how to fight against Satan."

Homily on 4/10/2014

3) “[The Devil] attacks the family so much. That demon does not love it and seeks to destroy it. […] May the Lord bless the family. May He make it strong in this crisis, in which the devil wishes to destroy it."

Homily, 6/1/2014

4) “It is enough to open a newspaper and we see that around us there is the presence of evil, the Devil is at work. But I would like to say in a loud voice ‘God is stronger.’ Do you believe this, that God is stronger?"

General audience, 6/12/2013

5) “Let us ask the Lord for the grace to take these things seriously. He came to fight for our salvation. He won against the devil! Please, let us not do business with the devil! He seeks to return home, to take possession of us… Do not relativize; be vigilant! And always with Jesus!"

Homily, 11/8/2013

6) “The presence of the devil is on the first page of the Bible, and the Bible ends as well with the presence of the devil, with the victory of God over the devil."

Homily, 11/8/2013

7) “Either you are with me, says the Lord, or you are against me… [Jesus came] to give us the freedom… [from] the enslavement the devil has over us… On this point, there are no nuances. There is a battle and a battle where salvation is at play, eternal salvation. We must always be on guard, on guard against deceit, against the seduction of evil."

Homily, 10/11/2013

8) “The devil plants evil where there is good, trying to divide people, families and nations. But God… looks into the ‘field’ of each person with patience and mercy: he sees the dirt and the evil much better than we do, but he also sees the seeds of good and patiently awaits their germination."

Homily, 7/20/2014

9) “The devil cannot stand seeing the sanctity of a church or the sanctity of a person, without trying to do something."

Homily, 5/7/2014

10) “Note well how Jesus responds [to temptation]: He doesn’t dialogue with Satan, as Eve did in the terrestrial Paradise. Jesus knows well that one can’t dialogue with Satan, because he is so cunning. For this reason, instead of dialoguing, as Eve did, Jesus chooses to take refuge in the Word of God and to respond with the power of this Word. Let us remind ourselves of this in the moment of temptation…: not arguing with Satan, but defending ourselves with the Word of God. And this will save us."

Angelus address, 3/9/2014

11) “We too need to guard the faith, guard it from darkness. Many times, however, it is a darkness under the guise of light. This is because the devil, as saint Paul, says, disguises himself at times as an angel of light."

Homily, 1/6/2014

12) “Behind every rumor there is jealousy and envy. And gossip divides the community, destroys the community. Rumors are the weapons of the devil."

Homily, 1/23/2014

13) “Let us always remember… that the Adversary wants to keep us separated from God and therefore instills disappointment in our hearts when we do not see our apostolic commitment immediately rewarded. Every day the devil sows the seeds of pessimism and bitterness in our hearts. … Let us open ourselves to the breath of the Holy Spirit, who never ceases to sow seeds of hope and confidence."

Speech, 6/18/2013

    I have learnt this the hard way. Fill your heart with love then there is no room for the devil to eat your sole. The devil is a parasite if you allow.

    I am so captivated by this revelation. I know Satan is out to return to heaven. I believe he is always trying. He also knows that he will never, ever get out of hell …so destroy, destroy is his motto!!!!! I believe every word Pope Francis speaks to us especially using Gospel words to ward off temptation. Yes Jesus used Sacred Scripture to respond to Satan. Sacred words defeat Satan When I am troubled, disappointed I repeat words like …Mary Hope of Mankind pray for us, over and over and I am healed. Or Jesus saves, Jesus heals, If Jesus sets me free, I am free indeed. Thank you Holy Father for not only telling us the problem but giving us the solution ….. respond with sacred scriptures or sacred words.Correct me dear Holy Father if I have gone wrong in my response. Love and pray for you and all priests and nuns.

    O Lord, how many times we know about the devil’s plans yet we allow him to work in us. Please Lord grant us the strength to keep your word and speak with you in times of devil’s temptations. We make this prayer through Christ our Lord Amen.
