Languages of publication
Man, as Ambrose teaches, should be constantly aware that he is put to the temptation which is experience inherent in freedom, because without temptation, there is no freedom. Jesus chooses knowingly and willingly, despite temptation, folly and weakness arising from the sign of the Cross (cf. 1Cor 1: 23-25). He takes the side of extreme obedience to the Father, and He does so as a man – with all the consequence of human weakness, fear of dying and suffering. He says no’ to Satan – to be a man with a man – to the very end. After the temptation in the desert devil leaves him, but by the time (cf. Lk 4: 13), and he waits for the next convenient moment to tempt Jesus. Ambrose encourages all those who are involved in fighting against the temptations of Satan, because Jesus Christ has overcome the world and opened the door to eternal life for everyone – through the community. Church – communion is the way of human victory over Satan, the prince of this world.
