Gospel : Mark 9:2-10
The Transfiguration revealed Christ divine nature. Just like his baptism at the Jordan River, the heavenly voice proclaims that Jesus is the beloved Son of God.
“Listen to him!” (Mark9:7), this time it is a word addressed to his disciples. To them, witnessing the event was an intense spiritual experience! They saw Jesus transfigured and heard the voice of the Father! Distracted and confused from what they heard from Jesus about his suffering, death and resurrection. This encounter sealed their faith. How about our own experience of transfiguration? Only a profound personal encounter with Jesus will display that dazzling enthusiasm and joy in us.
How about making your own project of life based on the four exercises - daily personal prayer, fraternal life, carrying your cross and missions? This lent is a good opportunity to live it out.
