Resisting temptation

For a really good reflection on today's readings I point you to Contemplating Christian

In his homily today Father talked about the need to simplify our lives. We need to learn to practice self denial for the sake of following Christ. Okay point taken.

Then I read C.C.'s reflection on today's reading saying that we have to recognize that it isn't a question of "if" we will be tempted but a question of "when". The answer seem to be with near perfect regularity. Point 2 taken.

Today's reading really came running at me. I had a run in with temptation yesterday and temptation won (this only two days after going to confession....argh). Not being able to receive communion today knowing that I had not been obedient to God really left me feeling empty. But I am comforted knowing that our Lord is waiting to welcome me with open arms in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
