Pope Francis: "No Dialog With the Devil"

(Mexico City) Yesterday, Sunday, Pope Francis, who is currently on a pastoral trip through Mexico, celebrated Holy Mass on the grounds of Ecatepec center near Mexico City. On this occasion, the miraculous image of Our Lady of Guadalupe was brought there. The Pope made a short sermon, previously distributed to journalists with a restriction period on publication, but in which he introduced improvised parts.

"Let us remember what we have heard in the Gospel: Jesus never contradicts the devil in his own words, but contradicts him with the words of God, with the words of Scripture. Because men and women, about which we must be clear, with the devil there is no dialogue, you can't conduct dialogue with him because he will always beat us. Only the power of God's words can defeat him.

The Spanish original text was published by the Holy See. An official English translation of the pope's preaching is not yet available.

Suggested by the Devil: Gabriele Amorth on New York Times

The famous Rome Exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth is almost completely convinced, that the attacks on the Pope in combination with the sex abuse cases were suggested by the Devil. The Devil uses even Priests.

Rom (kath.net) The famous Roman Exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth is almost completely convinced, that the attacks on Pope Benedict in conjunction with the sex abuse cases were suggested by the Devil. "There can be no doubt", said the 85 year old Amorth to Italian TV News Service Mediaset as well as reported by ORF. Amorth refered above all to the attack by the left-liberal "New York Times", here and here. The famous Exorcist recalled then, that Benedict is a wonderful Pope and worthy successor to John Paul II. The Devil has used incidentally,  even Priests in order to strike the Church, he referred to the sex abuse cases: "He attacks the Church through the men of the Church," for even these live in the world and might be brought down by temptations.
