Second Sunday in Lent
Philippians 3:20-4:1; Psalm 147:1,3-4,5,7;
Luke 9:28-36

Jesus is God’s Chosen One

Jesus took Peter, John, and James up on a mountain to pray. The three disciples fell asleep. When they woke, they saw that Jesus was changed. They also saw Moses and Elijah speaking with him. When Moses and Elijah were about to leave, Peter said, “Let us make three shelters – one for each of you.” Then a cloud’s shadow covered them and a voice said, “This is my chosen Son. Listen to what he says!”

In today’s Gospel, Jesus takes Peter, James, and John to the top of the mountain. While they are there, they experience the majesty and wonder that is God. Lent is a time to strengthen our relationship with God in prayer. The church provides opportunities to do this through retreats, Lenten services, and Mass. Sometimes, like the Apostles, we need something different to help us experience God in a new way.
