This Is My Chosen Son, Listen to Him (Lk. 9:35)

Image from Rafael Sanzio, The Transfiguration (1516-1520)

The story of the Transfiguration moment for this Sunday’s gospel in which Jesus takes Peter, John and James up to the mountain to pray is reminiscent of another account in Luke’s narrative in Luke chapter 22 of the Agony in the Garden narrative. In both accounts, the disciples fall asleep while praying.

How often do we also “fall asleep” and fail to grasp who this Jesus is in our own life? What will our moment look like when we awaken from our slumber and God reveals to us that moment of transfiguration for us? Will we be able to awaken from our slumber to recognize our relationship with Jesus as God’s beloved Son, or will we still be asleep?

May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life. Amen

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.
