On the 2nd Sunday of Lent, we have the Gospel narrative of the Transfiguration of Our Lord on Mount Tabor. Witnessing the Transfiguration of the Lord on Mount Tabor was a very special grace for Peter, James and John, who were privileged to have got a preview of the glory of Jesus risen from the dead and his glory in heaven.
However, prior to the incident Jesus had told them that he must suffer greatly, be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the scribes, be killed and rise after three days. Peter hadn’t liked the idea and let it be known to Jesus; for this he was rebuked (Mt 16:21-23). Peter knew what troubles awaited Jesus down there in the city.
In the Eucharist, we celebrate our encounter with Jesus in a special manner. Being in a Church is a beautiful experience; but we need to get back to the reality of our lives – with all its anxieties and perplexities, all its worries and joys.
