Video – Fr. Angelo Mary Geiger – Homily: Lead Us Not into Temptation
Loading the player...
Fr. Angelo touches on the need to avoid temptation as he preaches on Today's Gospel the Temptation of Christ in the Desert. Temptation is the battle that everyone undergoes to become like Christ. However, since we are so unlike Christ, who was God, we should not walk into temptation. But we are to follow his example in being humble. For our Lord it was a humbling experience, dealing with Satan's temptations in the desert for our benefit. We, on the other hand, find humility by fleeing temptation, which is the near occasion of sin. Father talks about the nature of Christ's temptation, the need to honor Christ as King in all His perfection as opposed to making Him just another Joe and to honor Mary, His greatest Masterpiece. He also mentions the need for the sacraments and to know the dispositions of contrition found in the traditional Act of Contrition.
Now is the time for repentance and Mercy. Let us make use of it.
