The Pastor's Desk

Lent I1 - This year, the second Sunday of Lent presents St. Luke's version of the Transfiguration of Jesus.  Luke emphasizes that Jesus was transfigured during a time of prayer and makes a connection between the Exodus event of the original covenant and Jesus' impending passage from death to life.  Like Abraham before them, they are filled with fear and joy - a very confusing experience,  During Lent we must hear with them the voice of the Father:  :This is my chosen son, listen to him"  (Luke 9:35).
During Lent we ask:  What is Jesus saying to me?  What am I doing to listen to him?  Let our prayer this week be for a heart more open to hearing what Jesus has to say to each of us!

May your Lent be fruitful and grace-filled!


Peace and all good things!
