Examin Sunday 20 Mar 2016

'I can't help how I feel.' How many today use these words or similar to excuse what they do. The adulterer his infidelity, the violent person her anger, those consumed with avarice their desire for the material things of this world. And indeed, while all may be tempted by such passions from time to time, they do not control us. We are the ones who decide to follow such inclinations or not. What we do is controlled by our will; and by our will we may do either good or evil. The claim that we allowed our passions rule our actions is not an excuse for doing evil; it is merely an admission that we did so of our own free will.
