Cardinal George on Jesus in Public Life

H/T Fr. Z. Cardinal George writes on Lent, the temptation of Christ, and the public life of the Church:

When tempted, Jesus didn’t play games with the devil. He recognized evil, named it and banished it. Sometimes, when people ask what Jesus would do, they con themselves into thinking that he would accept evil out of compassion for people who are tempted or feel themselves victims. Jesus was certainly compassionate, with a love beyond our understanding. But he didn’t cooperate with evil; he died to save us from it.
