Friends of the Rosary:

The Holy Trinity speaks to us in many ways, including through the Sunday Scripture readings.

And today, on the second Sunday of Lent, we move from Jesus’ retreat to the desert and the temptations by the devil to the splendor of the Transfiguration.

This episode, when Christ was transformed into pure light, is told in the three Synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke.

The Transfiguration is a promise of Jesus’ glory, his Resurrection.

On a mountain in today’s reading, a voice affirms that Jesus is God’s Son in words reminiscent of the voice at Jesus’ baptism. In addition, the appearance of Moses and Elijah connects this story with God’s relationship to the people of Israel.

Moses and Elijah represent the Law and the Prophets, respectively. Together with Jesus, they represent God’s complete Word.

The Transfiguration occurs in the presence of three of Jesus’ disciples — Peter, James, and John — who would accompany him to the Garden of Gethsemane just before his arrest in the first Sorrowful Mystery.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!

To Jesus through Mary!
Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will!
