Encounter Our True Self

Today marks the second Sunday of Lent and the readings in the Catholic Church come from the Gospel of Mark, chapter 9 verses 2-10. The transfiguration moment that startled Peter and the disciples had to be a powerful moment to behold. The combination of the old testament and fulfillment of the new testament as portrayed with the appearance of Elijah, Moses and Jesus together was an awesome experience that the human persona could not yet understand. The fulfillment of the prophetic line as represented with Elijah and the code of law as represented by Moses see the culminating spiritual manifestation event come to fruition with Jesus’s transfiguration and anointing of the Holy Spirit as represented in Mark’s gospel. Jesus’s clothes become intensely white where “no fuller on earth can bleach them” and the “cloud overshadowed them.” At what point in our lives do we recognize the stain of sin that blurs our vision and prevents us from seeing not only how to forgive ourselves, but how to forgive others? Will we recognize our Lord should the Holy Spirit come to us, or will we simply let such an event pass by? What will you do today to recognize that moment of transfiguration in your life, and will you be like Peter, not quite alert, but ready to make three tabernacles, or booths for any visitors that may come your way? Don’t lose sight of the moment and the fact that we must always be ready and prayerfully alert for when we might expect an unexpected visitor.

Our call to mission as being made in the image and likeness of God is two-fold: to have authentic relationships with our fellow man, and to have an authentic personal encounter with our living God through His Son Jesus Christ who is, who was and who will always be. Let us not bicker, spew hate, or worry about trivial matters when we can become better images of our self to walk humbly with our loving God.
