Second Sunday of LentLuke 9:28-36
The Transfiguration is the focus of today’s gospel reading. Why does the Church in its wisdom, bring this to our attention on the second Sunday of Lent? Lent is a season of repentance; a season of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. All our actions are aimed at true inner conversion of heart.
”Though the disciples do not understand his meaning, the Transfiguration and Jesus’ charge to the disciples present a promise of what is to come. There is hope, because he will soon triumph over sin and death, and be raised in the fullness of glory – the glory of which they have just been given a glimpse.”
