Father Edmund's Desk

We must not think of the Temptations of Jesus as being some rarefied experience that has no relevance for our lives today. Quite the opposite. Anyone who is serious about Christian discipleship is going to face similar temptations and choices - the temptation to put our own personal needs first; the temptation to go along with the ways of world; and the temptation to expect God to do what we want. In order to resist the wiles of the devil, we must pray constantly for wisdom and strength. So the question for us this Lent is: will our response to temptation be weak and human, or will we be strong and resolute like Jesus?
