A Sunday Reflection

Second Sunday of Lent (Cycle B)

JESUS LED THEM UP A HIGH MOUNTAIN APART BY THEMSELVES (MK 9:2).

Peter, James and John have a privileged vantage point on the mountain. Perhaps Jesus chooses them to witness His transfiguration because they need reinforcement the most. He shows them His glory, and —lest there be any doubt— Moses and Elijah appear conversing with Him. “Rabbi, it is good that we are here!”, exclaims Peter (Mk 9:5); and the gospel writer adds, “he hardly knew what to say, they were so terrified” (9:6).

We too prefer many times to stay on the mountain, whether because we are terrified of what we may find when we come down, or because we are so consoled in the Lord’s company. But we must come down. The voice coming from the cloud proclaims: “This is my beloved Son. Listen to Him” (9:7). And what is it that the Son says and we must listen to? “Go make disciples of all nations” (Mt 28:19).

The vision was not just for consolation, but for mission. In forty more days, as tradition holds, it will be Good Friday. We call it Good because on that day the Lord won our salvation on the Cross. But it does not end with the Cross; three days later the Lord will rise triumphant from the grave to make us sharers in His glory. This is the message we must take to all the nations. God bless you.

PS Many thanks to the 75 families who had contributed to the ABCD campaign. If you have not yet done so, I invite you to consider pledging $1 a day as part of your Lenten observance.

Save the date and join Fr. Sameer Advani, LC, for our Lenten Mission, Discovering the Heart of God, March 18, 19 and 20 at 7 p.m.

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fast for all Catholics between 18 and 59 years of age. One full meal and two smaller, meatless meals are permitted. Abstinence is to be observed on all Fridays of Lent as well as Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Catholics 14 years and older are bound to abstain from meat.

As part of our Lenten observance the parish will hold bilingual Stations of the Cross on the Fridays of Lent at 6:30 p.m. in the plaza. In addition, it will also be prayed in English on Friday mornings after the 8 a.m. Mass, instead of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

As of February 22, we have received pledges in the amount of $167,000 amounting to 49% of our goal. If you have not yet pledged, please consider pledging $1 a day for a year. Your participation is essential and will go a long way to help cover many needs.

LENT: A TIME FOR RENEWING FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE, BUT… HOW DO WE KNOW IF WE’RE DOING LENT RIGHT?

The marvels of our salvation, the wild generosity of God’s love — these can astound us every day, including each day of Lent. Consider this: God trusts us with His friendship; He also trusts us with His friends (that is, our neighbors, whom we are commanded to love as ourselves [Mark 12:31] ). More than that: God trusts us with His love; He also trusts us with His beloved (that is, His bride, the Church He founded). We must live Lent knowing that we are offered freedom from our sins, a present vocation of loving at the levels of the highest heroism, and a future glory beyond imagining. Sin would rob us of all that —the disciplines of Lent would preserve us from that sin.
