Pope Francis is an Italian tv star. He has his own series, an eight-part series of interviews in which the Holy Father will offer his thoughts on the Nicene Creed.
During the first installment, which aired Monday, Pope Francis affirmed what Catholic and other Christians have always known: The devil is real.
“Some say: ‘No, Satan does not exist: we have something bad inside, because of our material, spiritual or psychological diseases, and thus we have this tendency to evil,’” the pope said. “It is true that we are wounded: we are wounded persons. But Satan does exist, he is the seducer.”
