2/25/24 - Abraham, Isaac, and Jesus Transfigured - Cycle B
In this Second Sunday of Lent, in the Gospel of Mark, Jesus takes Peter, James and John up a mountain and they witness Jesus’ Transfiguration. His clothes became dazzling white and then Moses and Elijah appeared and began talking with Jesus. Peter, James, and John were amazed and afraid. Then a cloud came and made a shadow over them. A voice spoke from the cloud and said “This is my beloved Son. Listen to him”. They wonder what all this means. Coming down the mountain Jesus told Peter, James, and John not to tell anyone what happened until after He rose from the dead.
The Transfiguration remind us that even though Jesus suffered and died on the Cross, he rose in glory and gave us the opportunity for a new life forever in Heaven. It helps us understand that hard times will come and we need to think about Jesus because he understands our pain and suffering. There is a better life waiting for us when we are faithful. Each Lent gives us the opportunity to grow closer to Jesus, and become the person God created us to be for His glory.
As a family watch video in its entirety and then ask each other these questions.
What are some ways you can listen to Jesus? How will you listen to Jesus to change and grow during Lent?
Family Prayer: Jesus, show us the way to God the Father. Helps us listen so that we can hear you and follow you. Amen.

February 25, 2025 - Second Sunday of Lent
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Lent is well into its start, and it is always amazing to me, how the Church in her wisdom on the 2nd Sunday of Lent gives us the Gospel of transfiguration of Jesus before his disciples. The message is clear, that the purpose of Lent is to bring us to the encounter with God. The purpose of Lent is to bring us to individual transfiguration before God. Christ will transform us if we let him guide us, if we listen to his voice and follow him, if we accept his invitation to his friendship. He will transform not only our looks, but above all our hearts. He will transform our lives if we let him take us on the journey of Lent.
Lent, it is a path to transfiguration after meaningful meeting and experience with God, with Christ, with the Prophets, with the Saints. Transformed by grace, we will find ourselves the way that God meant us to be. This is my beloved son, this is my beloved daughter in whom I am well pleased, are going to be the words of Jesus to us, if we let him take us to the mountain of transfiguration this Lent. This is the goal of Lent, and of Christian life, this is the best that we can be, this is “the best version of ourselves” as Matthew Kelly would say.
2/25/24 - SEGUNDO DOMINGO DE CUARESMA.
Queridas Hermanas y Hermanos,
La Cuaresma ha comenzado bien y siempre me sorprende como la lglesia, en su sabiduría, el segundo Domingo de Cuaresma nos da el Evangelio de la transfiguración de Jesus ante sus discípulos. El mensaje es claro, que el propósito de la Cuaresma es llevarnos al encuentro con Dios. El propósito de la Cuaresma es llevarnos a la transfiguración individual ante Dios. Cristo nos transformara si le dejamos guiar, si escuchamos su voz y lo seguimos, si aceptamos su invitación a su amistad. El transformara no solo nuestra mirada, sino sobre todo nuestro corazón. El transformara nuestras vidas si dejamos que nos lleve por el camino de la Cuaresma.
La Cuaresma es un camino hacia la transfiguración después de un encuentro y una experiencia significativa con Dios, con Cristo, con los Profetas, con los Santos. Transformados por la gracia, nos encontraremos en la forma en que Dios quiso que fueramos. Este es mi hijo amado, esta es mi hija amada en quien tengo complacencia, van a ser las palabras de Jesus para nosotros, si dejamos que nos lleve al monte de la transfiguración en esta Cuaresma. Este es el objetivo de la Cuaresma y de la vida cristiana, esto es lo mejor que podemos ser, esta es “la mejor versión de nosotros mismos” como diría Matthew Kelly.
