'Devil not a myth' says pope

Francis exhorts Christians to put on 'God's armour'

(ANSA) - Vatican City, October 30 - The devil exists and must be fought, Pope Francis said in a homily in the Vatican on Thursday. "This generation, and many others, have been led to believe that the devil is a myth, a figure, an idea, the idea of evil.
    But the devil exists and we must fight against him," the pope told faithful gathered for Mass at St Martha's guesthouse where he resides. "But we are not totally convinced," continued Francis, exhorting Christians to put on "the armour of God: the truth".
    "Life is a militia. The Christian life is a fight, a beautiful fight, because when the lord is victorious in every step of our lives he gives us joy," the Pope said. http://popefrancisnewsapp.com/
