2nd Sunday in Lent 2018
During Lent it is important to stir up sorrow for our sins and to receive the Sacrament of Penance. The older form for the penitent to use in the confessional expressed aspects of this beautiful sacrament that we should appreciate. If received well, this sacrament can even make us holier than just before we sinned, for example we have St. Peter. The Gospel for this Sunday is about the Transfiguration and is meant to encourage us, as it did the Apostles, for the struggles we must face in the days ahead.
