Fr. Mike uses the classic myths involving the Sirens to explain some ways to avoid temptation. He points out the differences between the ways Ulysses, his crew, and Jason of the Argonauts dealt with the monsters, and he suggests that we use some advice St. Paul gave to the Philippians when it comes to dealing with temptation.
