Relction for the Second Sunday in Lent
My dear Friends:
The story of the transfiguration in today’s gospel must have been an amazing experience for Peter, James and John. Dennis Hamm, S.J., explains that (i) Jesus’ being transfigured is like a foretaste of his resurrection; and (ii) the fact that Jesus has been joined in conversation with Moses and Elijah, as part of this awe-filled experience, situates Jesus within the prophetic linage as one of the “mediators of God’s word and covenant”.
How does this apply to our present lives, ministries, spiritual journeys and challenge? Hopefully, I shall explain this at the masses on Sunday. Remember, too, the sessions on Tuesday evenings in the hall:
During Lent, in the Church Hall, on Tuesday evenings at 7.30 p.m., we are having a prayerful exploration of Mark’s gospel. I feel certain that you will find this introduction to Mark, the times in which he lived, the issues of the times he was trying to address, helpful in your own spiritual, ministerial journeys.
Love, Peace and Blessings,
