being transfigured

in 2015, I had the opportunity to see the holy land with our claretian bible pastoral ministry. during that time, i presided mass at the chapel of the transfiguration on mt. tabor. they claimed that it was the place where jesus was gracefully changed before peter james and john (mt 17: 1-9): jesus was the son of God and to listen to him. jesus’ message: rise, do not fear. this was jesus in his glory and these apostles received a glimpse of it. it gave them a taste of resurrection hope in their lives. it prepared them for their journey to follow and then be sent by jesus.

my prayer is that we all have the graces to move beyond our fears, listen to jesus’ message of selfless love and receive glimpses of resurrection hope in our life journey.
