Battle Plan Against Temptation – Jan 31 – Homily – Fr Terrance

Views 707


Fr Terrance gives the homily at Bloomington, IN on Jan 31, 2020, on how we need to have a battle plan established to win victories over temptations when they come to avoid being conquered like king David was conquered. Father lays out four-point to this battle plan:

  1. Recognize - Keep vigilant to recognize temptations quickly

  2. Our Lady - ask for her intercession to be strong in resisting

  3. Shift focus - have a task ready at hand to take the mind off the temptation to not focus on it.

  4. Sacraments - frequent the sacraments especially confession

He stresses that being tempted is not a sin, but to not resist them is and a plan is essential.

Ave Maria!
