My compliments to the artist. His Francis is perfect and the classical inspiration for his devil is superb. An appropriate likeness to work from since in the original painting the devil was encouraging Judas' betrayal of Our Lord.

These are united in yielding their power and authority to the beast
St Michael the Archangel cast into hell Satan and the other evil spirits who prowl the Vatican and Episcopal palaces. Amen
That is the statement of an apostate.

According to St Catherine of Siena, although Satan incites people to sin, he is loathe to hang around to see the sin carried out.
Christ said to St Catherine that it is due to Satan's (and the other fallen host) angelic nature, that he can not stand to witness acts of impurity.
He tempts us to sin merely to ensure we are damned. If we seem to repent, he sees to it that we are tempted again.
He can not abide, immorality himself, it is merely due to his wickedness that he uses the black arts/Sorcery to inspire us to sin, since his strength is far greater than ours because he is an Angel.
He inspires us to sin FIRST, and then loathe to witness that act, he flees from us.
Pity those he inspires to concupiscence did not understand it. It is only CHRIST, St Michael or Our Lady who are able to defeat him.

In this text, Our Lord is discussing with St Catherine the issue of Homosexuality in His Priesthood

“If the autonomy of the temporal order means that created things do not depend on God, and that man may use them without reference to the Creator, all who believe in God will realize how false is this teaching. For creation without the Creator fades into nothingness.” -Vatican II

You see how the devil's left arm seems to extend into the arm of the victim signifying the victim is a puppet?
