Second Sunday of LentMark 9:2-10
Today’s gospel reading is the recounting of the Transfiguration. Ponder for a moment why the Transfiguration is the gospel for the beginning portion of Lent. Could it be because we are called to transform our lives during this season? And the changes should not be just for the time period of Lent. Lent is a time to develop new habits, new ways of living, permanantly. Think about your list for Lent. What are you “giving up?” What spiritual practices have you added? Can these be permanent changes to your life as a means of becoming a better you? Will these practices bring you closer to God?
