A Lenten retreat: Transfiguring ourselves

"Jesus took Peter, John, and James and went up the mountain to pray" (Luke 9:28b).

The Transfiguration story. We hear it every year on the Second Sunday of Lent. And I’ve always liked it. It’s different. It’s a story full of light and hope. We get a glimpse of Jesus in his glory. It has nothing to do with sin or fasting or the other more serious themes of Lent. Or does it?

Read the rest here.

Each week during Lent, will feature a written reflection on the coming Sunday’s Gospel. Each one will try to offer some insight into what God’s Word might mean for our Lenten journey today. New reflections will be posted on Wednesdays.

On the same page with the written reflections, you’ll find Lenten audio talks preached by Redemptorists of the Baltimore Province. This week’s topics are "Suffering" and "Prayer."

We hope these offerings will help you on your spiritual walk through Lent and lead you to a joyful Easter. May Our Mother of Perpetual Help be with us along the way.
