He always pretends to be polite, warns Francis.
Indeed, Satan “is smarter than we are,” said Peter’s Successor. “If you start talking to him,” he said, “he makes you turn your head, and you’re lost.” Rather than start talking with him, “run away,” said the Argentine pope.
Satan “always pretends to be polite” with priests and bishops, the pope added. Then, he enters, and “if you do not notice it in time, you meet a bad end.”
The television program Padre Nostro is directed by Don Marco Pozza, chaplain of the prison in Padua (Italy). The series, which is broadcast every Wednesday evening at 9 pm, has nine episodes. Each is introduced by a short interview with the pontiff. From these interviews was also born the book Padre Nostro, published by Vatican Publishing House and Rizzoli Books.
