Gospel: Mt 17:1-9
“Rise, and do not be afraid”
How do you live in the midst of the changes around -- Taal Eruption, nCov Virus impacting global economy? Perhaps everyone has a story to tell about the many changes that are happening in one's life right now.
In the Gospel, Jesus takes His disciples up the mountain and tells them of the impending change to come. In the midst of that, they have witnessed the transfiguration of Jesus before God. Lent is a season focused on change. An opportunity for us to take a stock of ourselves, look inwardly and embrace one’s vulnerability. We hear many voices around us. Transfiguration reminds us to listen to only one voice.
For this we pray for openness, awareness, attentiveness and courage to act on his Word which gives hope, healing, peace and life .
