Fr. Marvin's Reflection
February 25, 2024
In today’s gospel (Mk 9:2-10), Jesus takes Peter, James and John on a journey up Mount Tabor to pray. It was on this mountain where Jesus revealed Himself as the glorified Christ with His clothing and face dazzling white. Although the apostles were terrified, a cloud overshadowed them and they heard the voice of God. saying,”This is my beloved son, listen to Him.” The apostles were reassured of Jesus identity as the fulfillment of the Law, the prophets, and as the glorified Son of God.
In our Lenten journey we invite our Lord to reveal Himself in all of His glory through our fasting, praying, and almsgiving. In our effort to pray and spend quality quiet time with our Lord may we also be more attentive to His presence and listen to His voice speaking to our hearts. It is our hope that in the end of our 40 day journey we are strengthened in our identity in the Risen Christ and continually love and follow Him unreservedly.
