‘God hasn’t stopped talking. He talks through the lives of loving people’.
Peter, James and John saw Jesus in all his glory on the mountain top. The face of Jesus was described as ‘shining like the sun’. His inner glory shone through and the disciples were filled with joy. God was present in the person of Jesus. This account tells us a lot about ourselves if we give ourselves time to reflect on it. Each one of us carries within ourselves a divine spark; ‘created in the image and likeness of God’.
Matt 17 : 1-3
Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain by themselves.
And he was transfigured before them; his face shone like the sun and his clothes became white as light.
And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, conversing with him.
Father, fill our hearts with your love, and keep us faithful to the Gospel of Christ. Give us the grace to rise above our human weakness.
Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen
Lord Jesus Christ, you said to your apostles: ‘I leave you peace, my peace I give to you.’ We find it hard to give peace to others because often we don’t have it in ourselves. Help us in our weakness, and grant us the peace and unity of your kingdom, where you live for ever and ever. Amen
