PODCAST | Second Sunday of Lent: The Transfiguration of Jesus
In the Gospel for the Mass of the Second Sunday of Lent we contemplate the Transfiguration of Jesus.
“Jesus took Peter, James, and John
and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves.
And he was transfigured before them…” (Mark 9:2)
He takes them up Mount Tabor, as Fr Javier del Castillo explains in today’s meditation, “to show them the full truth about himself, about his divinity, so that they can have hope in eternal life and they remember this experience of divinity, of bliss, of eternity, when it comes time to suffer through the passion.”
“In considering this scene at Tabor, we try to go to Jesus, to look at him, so that we may be enlightened. So that whether we are ill, suffering or dying– or sick and tired– we actually try to discover the Tabors behind the Calvaries.”
