Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

The devil said to him,

“If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.”

JESUS TEMPTATION pppas0473

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 4:1-13.

Filled with the holy Spirit, Jesus returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the desert
for forty days, to be tempted by the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and when they were over he was hungry.
The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.”
Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘One does not live by bread alone.'”
Then he took him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a single instant.
The devil said to him, “I shall give to you all this power and their glory; for it has been handed over to me, and I may give it to whomever I wish.
All this will be yours, if you worship me.”
Jesus said to him in reply, “It is written: ‘You shall worship the Lord, your God, and him alone shall you serve.'”
Then he led him to Jerusalem, made him stand on the parapet of the temple, and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here,
for it is written: ‘He will command his angels concerning you, to guard you,’
and: ‘With their hands they will support you, lest you dash your foot against a stone.'”
Jesus said to him in reply, “It also says, ‘You shall not put the Lord, your God, to the test.'”
When the devil had finished every temptation, he departed from him for a time.

Strengthened by temptations

“Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.”… For since Jesus did and underwent everything with a view to our instruction  he likewise consented to be led there and wrestle against the devil in order that every baptized person who, after baptism, has to endure greater temptations may not be troubled as though this outcome were unexpected, but may continue to endure everything nobly as though it were happening in the natural course of things. For indeed, this was the reason you took up arms, not to be idle, but to fight.

For this reason God does not prevent temptations from coming, either. First of all to teach you that you are now much stronger; next, that you may remain humble and not be puffed up by the greatness of your gifts since the temptations have power to repress you; then, in order that that wicked demon, who remains for a while doubtful about your desertion of him,  may be well assured by the touchstone of temptation that you have utterly forsaken and fallen from him; fourthly, that you may in this way be made stronger and better tempered than any steel; fifthly, that you may obtain a clear demonstration of the treasures entrusted to you. For the devil would not have assailed you unless he had seen that you had been brought to greater honor.

Memorial
(Feast in Europe)

      St. Cyril and St. Methodius were brothers from Thessalonica (Greece).
      Cyril was born about 826 and died at Rome in 869.
      Methodius was born about 815. He was made a bishop and spent many years preaching the gospel in Hungary, despite resistance and hostility. He died in Velehrad (Czech Republic) in 885.
      With papal approval they preached the gospel in Moravia using their own translations of the Scriptures and the liturgy in the local language. These translations into Slavonic were based on an alphabet they invented, now called Cyrillic.
      Cyril and Methodius are honoured as apostles of the Slavic peoples.
