Ref: Sermon from Our Lady of the Angels, Fr. Burfitt
The Lord tempts us not, says the scriptures, but it is the devil that tempts our will like He did to Our King.
For the devil is stuck in the confusion from his sin and having no faith in him, him not knowing the gift of grace the devils struck in uncertainty offering us the worldly things for he knows nothing more of the Truth. May we too like Our Lord always respond with the Word of God, reminding us of the faith we have to His glorious promises always looking towards Heaven.
May we ask ourselves during this Lent:
Quid Hoc Ad Aetenitatem?
What has Christ done for us?
What would we do for Christ?
