Beckman: Diabolical Vexation & Grace

Kathleen Beckman has written an extraordinarily good article posted on CatholicExchange.com that I strongly encourage all to read.  It begins with the following quote from Origen in the Catholic Catechism:

The Catholic Catechism quotes Origen: “There is a certain usefulness to temptation. No one but God knows what our soul has received from him, not even ourselves. But temptation reveals it in order to teach us to know ourselves, and in this way we discover our evil inclinations and are obliged to give thanks for the goods that temptation has revealed us (#2847, Origin, De orat.29).”
