On this Second Sunday of Lent we meditate on the Transfiguration of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Gospel of St. Mark.
We join the three future leaders of the Followers of Jesus: Peter, the first Pope; James, the Head of the Church of Jerusalem, who was died as a martyrs; John, the Beloved Disciple, the author of St. John’s Gospel, Revelation and the Epistles that carry his name. And we experience the Law and the Prophets meet together in Jesus. We know that all aspects of our lives are brought together in Jesus and we hear the Father:
This is my beloved Son, listen to Him! Mark 9:7
We need Transfiguration Moments! May this Sunday and every Sunday be Transfiguration Moments for us so that during the week we can hold on to hope!
