Feb 17 – Homily – Fr Elias: Dealing with Temptation

Views 1098



Homily #130217b ( 17min) Play - Fr. Elias preaches on how to deal with temptation and the Devil. Temptation comes from concupiscence which is based on the flesh, the world and Devil. Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden failed in the face of temptation, while Jesus, fasting in the desert for forty days, conquered the temptations of the Devil. Lent makes present in our lives this same victorious strategy in our life-long battle.

    I was attracted to this sermon because temptation is such a problem for me. My time is limited, so the prospect of a 17 minute viewing almost caused me to not listen. I frequently avoid these homilies for that reason. I suggest that you limit them to 12 minutes or less to attract more people to view them.
