How to resist temptations.
The Bible says that Jesus can help us in all temptations because He has faced them Himself. If that is true, then why do we have so much difficulty resisting temptation? The answer is the Holy Spirit. We need more of the power of the Holy Spirit. Lastly, we ought to pray to and invoke the Holy Spirit, for each one of us greatly needs His protection and His help. The more a man is deficient in wisdom, weak in strength, borne down with trouble, prone to sin, so ought he the more to fly to Him who is the never-ceasing fount of light, strength, consolation and holiness.... Pope Leo XIII
