Second Sunday in Lent 2017
The Transfiguration of Our Lord showed Him in all His Glory and it was an event that at first frightened the apostles, then reassured them in the Faith. The Voice from Heaven, “This is My Beloved Son, hear ye Him,” shook the apostles to their very core. We must realize that we ourselves will be transfigured and that our bodies will be glorified if we persevere in the Faith and have the humility necessary to enter Our Lord’s Kingdom after our physical death on this earth. Peter, James and John were selected to give us a glimpse of what awaits us if we are faithful and have the humility to accept whatever Judgment is conferred on us when we ourselves meet Our Lord in His Glory.
