Transfiguration Of Our Lord

Screen Shot 2017-03-12 at 8.54.36 PM

As we continue our Lenten journey towards Easter, we recall today the Transfiguration of Jesus. The primary purpose of Jesus’ Transfiguration was to allow Him to consult His Heavenly Father in order to ascertain His plan for His Son’s suffering, death and Resurrection. The secondary aim was to make his chosen disciples aware of His Divine glory, so that they might be strengthened in their time of trial. On the mountain, Jesus is identified by the Heavenly Voice as the Son of God. Describing Jesus’ Transfiguration, the Gospel gives us a glimpse of the Heavenly glory awaiting those who do God’s will. Every time we gather for the Eucharist we experience a moment of transfiguration where our divine Lord is transfigured before our eyes in the forms of bread and wine. Hence, just as the mountain-top experience of the Transfiguration of Jesus strengthened the Apostles in their time of trial, each Holy Mass should be our source of Heavenly strength against our own temptations and a source for the renewal of our lives during Lent.

Let us pray that during this Lent we have a mountain-top experience as the disciples had and a transformation of our lives, enabling us to radiate the glory and grace of the transfigured Lord to all around us by our Spirit-filled lives and to find hope and encouragement during our time of trails.
