Second Sunday of Lent
Luke 9:28-36


The Transfiguration certainly affirmed Jesus as the Son of God, but it also had an important message for the disciples and all of us. Jesus is teaching us that our life can be transformed through prayer. This transfiguration helps his disciples to see how they can deal with life and suffering, transformed through the power of God’s grace. We, too, can be changed, nourished, and strengthened in our personal prayer and in the celebration of the sacraments. Any experience of God is a transforming experience.
