Weekend Reflections for 2/27/15
"Jesus took Peter, James and John and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became dazzling white ..." Mk 9:2-3
Jesus takes his favored three up a mountain to share with them who he truly is, to gift them with a glance of destiny, his and theirs and ours. They see Jesus as he will be after his resurrection, as he will appear to them in the upper room with his greeting of Peace. They never really understood his predictions that he will suffer and die and they will forget this blessed moment when it happens.
St. Paul also experienced the risen Lord Jesus and he understood and rejoiced. He assures us that God is for us and nothing can keep us from his love. The banner of the Risen Lord reads: Love is Stronger than Death! As we live these days of Lent, God keeps reminding us that we are his Beloved and we, too, will be transfigured.
