February 13 - St. Catherine of Ricci
Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. He fasted for forty days and forty nights, and afterwards he was hungry. The tempter approached and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, command that these stones become loaves of bread." He said in reply, "It is written: 'One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God'" (Matthew 4: 1-4).
It is easy to live life from one pleasure or material thing to the next, always seeking our own satisfaction. Christ did not live this way. He lived to fulfill God’s will. We should follow his example.
Jesus, you had a very strong will. Help me to realize that I need to use my will to conquer my feelings and temptations.
