Christ sought solitude in the desert. He was led by the Holy Ghost as His guide. He prepared Himself to confront temptation. We should be happy and grateful to Christ because He allowed Himself to be tempted in order to show us how to gain victory over our own temptations. Christ shows His love for us in allowing Himself to be tempted! All we need to do to win victory in temptation is to desire it!

Temptation helps us to know ourselves. It is necessary so that we can realize our unworthiness and prevent our pride from taking control over ourselves. We must humbly turn to Christ in temptation and He will always gives us the grace to overcome.

In Christo Jesu et
Maria Immaculata,

Father Jeff Fasching
