Ever feel like you can’t overcome temptation, and that you’re doomed to sin in ways great and small?
Jesus understands. Before he began his public ministry, he faced off against Satan after a 40-day fast in the desert, as the Gospel passage for the First Sunday of Lent reminds us.
Austin Robuck, a seminarian from St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Wynnewood, shares how Christ’s response in this encounter offers us hope and power when we’re confronted with the choice between sin and life in the Spirit.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
