Are Temptations Your Friends?

2 Comments

Jesus said in the gospel that temptations are sure to come. He added, “Woe to the one through whom they come.” In other words, life cannot be lived without temptation. When we think about it, giving in to temptation leads us away from God. Resisting temptation helps us build our spiritual muscles and grow in virtue. Thus, temptations, while no one loves or welcomes them, can be our “friends.” Do you view them this way? Or do you feel helpless in the face of temptations? Do you feel if you’ve experienced temptation that you’ve sinned? There is a distinction between the two. Share your take on Wednesday with Jerry and Debbie.

  1. In regards to confession, this country spends millions on psychiatrists, we spend hours in bars baring 0ur souls to the bartender, we tell our friends things all of the time, but, we never know who is going to repeat it to other people. A priest can never divulge what it is said in the confessional under the pain of excommunication. We also get to talk to someone just as we talk to a psychiatrist and it doesn’t cost a penny, We also get to hear the words I absolve you from all of your sins in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit Amen.
