Turning from the Devil

Genuine repentance is the result of the work of the Holy Spirit in you heart.
"Faith is not some decorative or ornamental thing. To live the faith is not to decorate life with a little religion like a cake is decorated with a little frosting. Faith entails choosing God as a fundamental criterion of life.
To follow Jesus requires renunciation of evil, of egoism, and choosing good, truth, justice and a renunciation of self-interest. The true strength of Christianity is the strength of faith, of love, that involves the renunciation of all violence" Pope Francis
