Does it surprise you that Jesus was tempted? For 40 days? While he was fasting and alone?   I find that many people have a hard time understanding sin and how it works in their lives. Many also lack an understanding of the two great spiritual forces outside of themselves, each seeking to engage us in a different mission.

I am very grateful for the generous gifts of prayer, talents and financial support that you share with our parish family throughout the year.
