Capuchin Friar and Preacher to the Papal Household, Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa, spoke on the existence of the devil in his Gospel reflection for the 1st Sunday of Lent. Fr. Cantalamessa said, "Demons, Satanism and other related phenomena are quite topical today, and they disturb a great part of our society. Our technological and industrialized world is filled with magicians, wizards, occultism, spiritualism, fortune tellers, spell trafficking, amulets, as well as very real Satanic sects. Chased away from the door, the devil has come in through the window. Chased away by the faith, he has returned by way of superstition...."
