268- Temptation


Vlog 268 – Temptation

 Hello my friend, I’m Victoria Bellido Durán, member of the Musical Group Flos Mariae, and today I want to give you my opinion about the subject that I entitled: “Temptation”.

My friend, many mistakenly believe that having temptations is bad, it is a sin. Have you read the Gospels? If not, I invite you to do it, you will see that you learn many useful things. In the Gospel it is narrated how Jesus, God Himself, true God and true Man, was tempted by the devil in the desert. Despite the cunning and persistence of the devil, Jesus did not fall into temptation, I repeat: He did not fall into temptation! This is precisely what we Christians pray in “the Our Father”, the prayer that Jesus taught us, and that you will also find in the Gospel.

Every human being is constantly tempted by the devil, who wants to separate us from God, that is why he insists persistently that we sin, so that we die to Grace.

Having temptations, in itself, is not a sin, what is a sin is:

1. To fall into temptations.
2. To put yourself on the occasion of sin.
3. To be like the devil, and to tempt others, being a stone of stumbling to them.

My friend, my friend; when you have temptations, that you will have them —everyone has them— pray to your guardian angel, and ask Holy Mary to crush the devil’s head so that he leaves you alone; and of course, persevere in goodness. And if you fall into any temptation, repent from the bottom of your heart, go to confession and start again with the Grace of God.

My friend, thank you.

And always go ahead with faith.
