Lenten Reflections 2019

Second Sunday in Lent 2019: Year C

“Lord, it is wonderful for us to be here; if you wish, I will make three tents here, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah” 

When Jesus takes some of his disciples away from the noise and business of everyday life and takes them up a mountain. This is unusual in itself, because we know from the gospels that Jesus often goes to the mountain top to pray alone.

 Reflecting on the Transfiguration: It is Christ who will transform us

Notwithstanding the liturgical year, the second Sunday of Lent is always a transfiguration Sunday. In this liturgical year C, the Gospel makes us reflect on the Transfiguration according to Luke, while apostle Paul actually shows that it is Christ who will transform us.

Reflection by Fr. Desire Yamuremye S.J, Director of Loyola Cultural Center and Loyola Esperance Center (CEL) in Lome, Togo
