Sunday Reflection from Father Anthony

Lent is a time of great experiences, some of which take place inside us and some we can see for ourselves on the outside.

Today's experience of Christ's Transfiguration is foretelling what will happen to Jesus both in the garden of agony and there after the glory that Jesus will receive. This time is, therefore, a time for preparation on our part for the events ahead. We have to be ready to suffer and share Jesus' passion and death in order to be able to experience the glory of God! Jesus took the three disciples Peter, John and James because he had a reason! He wanted them to join him in prayer, that is why prayer is one of the most important aspects of this season of lent. After Jesus' Transfiguration, the disciples loved the whole experience and they wanted to stay there! At the time, they had overcome the fear of what was to happen to him!

The glory of the Lord has an impact on each one of us in our lives and that is what this season of lent is meant for. Lent is forward looking and as long we begin this journey, we have to bring it to its desired completion. May we have the courage and the strength necessary for this season. Then we shall be able to say like the disciples "Master, it is good that we are here…"

Amen.
