Lead us not into temptation

It is clear that the world is not free from fear, oppression and evil simply because of religion.  Belief in God does not make people perfect.  At least, not in a simplistic way.  But faith is the beginning part of the gift of God’s love, the Holy Spirit, who can bring us to always choose good over evil.

He nourishes and sustains us, as we grow in the new life of learning to do good.  As we become ever more ourselves we more naturally do the good.  Just as it seems always easier to do the wrong thing, than the right, so under the work of the Holy Spirit we are led to respond to the world with his love and mercy.

God’s daily sustenance of the world is a bringing to perfection the lives of humanity within our freedom and will.
