JESUS IS TRANSFIGURED

Week B-L2 Mark 9: 2-10

After six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no fuller on earth could bleach them. Then Elijah appeared among them along with Moses, and they were conversing with Jesus. Then Peter said to Jesus in reply: “Rabbi, it is good that we are here! Let us makes three tents: one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” He hardly knew what to say, they were so terrified. Then a cloud came, casting shadow over them; then from the cloud came a voice, “This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.” Suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone but Jesus alone with them. As they were coming down from the mountain, he charged them not to relate what they had seen to anyone, except when the Son of Man had risen from the dead. So they kept the matter to themselves, questioning what rising from the dead meant.

The Gospel this week reveals to us a great event that happened to Jesus. When He took three of His disciples; Peter, James, and John up a mountain, Jesus showed them His shining glory. Jesus’ facial appearance changed and His clothes became extremely bright. After His transfiguration, Moses and Elijah appeared and began talking to Jesus. Suddenly, God the Father spoke from the cloud saying Jesus is His Son and ordered all to listen to Jesus. Jesus then asked His disciples not to tell anyone about the event until Jesus has been raised from the dead, although the disciples did not fully understand.

3. CONNECT IT!

Today’s Gospel tells the story of a great moment in Jesus’ life and the lives of His disciples. The great miracle of the Transfiguration revealed the divinity of Christ before His passion and death. Three of His disciples witnessed Jesus’ Transfiguration, which aimed to strengthen the apostles’ faith in anticipation to what was to come, the Passion. Like the disciples, God the Father invites us to recognize the glory of His beloved Son, Jesus, and listen to Him. God gives us experiences to help us strengthen our faith in Him, just like how the three disciples witnessed the Transfiguration. When bread and wine becomes Christ’s body and blood, it is a miracle we are honored to witness every time we participate in Mass. Jesus is inviting us to be one with Him. Next time you attend Mass, listen to Jesus’ words in the Gospel and see if you can feel His presence.

4. LIVE IT!

[ Visionary ] Visionary: thinking with imagination or wisdom

5. REMEMBER IT!

God the Father calls us to listen to His beloved Son, Jesus, who has great wisdom and vision of the future.

“This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.” (Mark 9:7)

When you go to Mass this week, spend some quiet time and ask Jesus to help you envision Him in the Mass. When you get home, write down how you feel and share it with your parents and friends.

6. PRAY IT! Heavenly Father, please help us to listen to Jesus when we attend Mass this week so that we can be a witness of His glory in our life. Amen.
