Temptation is all around us everyday. As human beings, we are all vulnerable to temptations. whys is it so easy for us to give in? I think sometimes we want a life free of complications, free of consequences. We just want to live in the moment.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to be free and happy however we should learn to accept that our actions have consequences and we cannot just do whatever we please. As a grown up, i realize that you cannot "have your cake and eat it." Something has got to give, you have to let go off somethings.
Sometimes, i think i want something and why shouldn't i have it? But that's just being selfish and immature. You usually feel guilty after giving in to temptation and you end up feeling worse instead of better. You just have to keep trying to fight the urge to give in . ( "it is really hard but suck it up")

But the truth is sometimes in life , there is no answer! I was watching one of the TV shows i love, (yes i love watching TV shows) and the dad was saying to his child that "one day you are going to grow up and realize that you don't have all the answers".
Children usually have an innocence that reasons that there is an answer for everything but us we grow up we realize that life is not black and white. Life is complicated and sometimes there is no explanation. There are so many things that happen in life and we ask ourselves why? Why are some people born with horrible disabilities? why are some people insane? why do some parents abandon their children? Why do some people die so young? why cant everybody find love?
There are just so many things we cannot understand and not matter how desperately we want…
Last week i mentioned that i would be going on pilgrimage. I was in a little village in Rwanda called Kibeho. It is a remote place towards the border with Burundi on top of rather steep hills. For those who have not heard about Kibeho, it is the site of the appartions of the blessed virgin Mary since the early 80's. It is also now associated with the divine mercy devotion as well!
To summarise a beautiful message, Our mother calls us to repent and have a true conversion of heart. There is so much hatred, selfishness and bitterness in this world. Too much of a spirit of unforgiveness! When she first appeared she showed them the visions of what would come to pass if people did not convert. (the genocide). Our mother truly loves us and does not want to see our destruction. Unfoirtunatley human beings are stubborn and what she had foretold did indeed come to pass. In 1994, the horror of the genocide became a reality and the river run red with the blood of slaughtered people, headless …
