Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord

Mark 9:2-10

If you wish to grow ivy, you need to remember that the first year it sleeps, the second year it creeps, the third year it leaps. I thought how true this is can be of our spiritual life. First, we are formed, then we are informed and finally we are transformed. On this feast of the Transfiguration, we need to ask ourselves where we are in our relationship with God. Are we sleeping, creeping or leaping? Where are we on our journey in striving for holiness?
