Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
August 6, 2021 Friday
Gospel : Mark 9:2-10
“And he was transfigured before them”
Today is the feast of the Transfiguration of our Lord . Peter, James and John followed Jesus , went up to the mountain to pray . Up there they saw his glory and heard the voice from heaven proclaiming Jesus as the beloved son!
Prayer transforms us. A listening heart is a heart touched through an authentic encounter of God. An encounter is both a dialogue and listening . But better if we spend the moment listening to God and allowing him to speak to us. Prayer can feel like going up the “mountain”, needing effort to get in the moment. But if you choose to make it your daily option and priority, it changes your outlook and disposition in this new normal.
Jesus, teach us how to pray! Amen!
