December 9 - Saint Juan Diego
"To what shall I compare this generation? It is like children who sit in marketplaces and call to one another, 'We played the flute for you, but you did not dance, we sang a dirge but you did not mourn.' For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they said, 'He is possessed by a demon.' The Son of Man came eating and drinking and they said, 'Look, he is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.' But wisdom is vindicated by her works" (Matthew 11: 16-19).
Jesus ate and drank with moderation. He always used his will to keep himself in check. Our feelings can get really strong sometimes but our will is stronger.
Lord, help me to understand that I can conquer temptation with YOU.
