Then reach for this modest book by Fr. P.J. Michel, S.J., a savvy professor of theology whose wisdom and common sense have been forged not only in the classroom, but by decades of ardent prayer and service to penitent souls in the confessional.
Here Fr. Michel explains where your temptations come from and helps rid you of them (and of your fear of them). He teaches you how to best respond to the different kinds of temptations that assail you, and he even shows you how to profit spiritually from your temptations, no matter how strong or frequent they may be
From these clear, succinct pages you'll learn:
- Why you, in particular, are still tempted (and why God allows it)
- Whether your temptations show that you've turned away from God
- Whether the evil thoughts and impulses that afflict you regularly are merely temptations . . . or sins to which you have somehow consented
