Gospel: Luke 9:28-36

Now about eight days after these sayings Jesus took with him Peter and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray. And while he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became dazzling white. Suddenly they saw two men, Moses and Elijah, talking to him. They appeared in glory and were speaking of his departure, which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem. Now Peter and his companions were weighed down with sleep; but since they had stayed awake, they saw his glory and the two men who stood with him. Just as they were leaving him, Peter said to Jesus, ‘Master, it is good for us to be here; let us make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah’—not knowing what he said. While he was saying this, a cloud came and overshadowed them; and they were terrified as they entered the cloud. Then from the cloud came a voice that said, ‘This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!’ When the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. And they kept silent and in those days told no one any of the things they had seen.

Luke 9:28-36


Our gospel for today is from Luke 9:28-36. Today marks the transfiguration of Jesus. Jesus is the Son of God, the Chosen One, His identity is not hidden from His people. His mission is clearer than the water in the rivers. 

The gospel in Luke 9:28-36 is a reminder that Jesus in His divinity still goes through a lot of trials to save us. He is a royalty but He suffered a lot for our sins. 

The prophecy of the Old Testament is realized in the presence of Moses and Elijah. Let us proclaim our faith in Jesus. The transfiguration of Jesus is a manifestation of His radiance and glory forever.

This Lenten season, we must remember our sins. We have to think that Jesus transfigured in all glory. He reveals His majesty by saving us all. If Jesus can do it even He is already a divinity, how much more us?

We have to think that prayer can change everything and can make us become clean. Prayer will change us no matter how heavy our sins will be. Prayer is like a thread that connects us to Jesus. Prayer will lead us 

The gospel in Luke 9:28-36 will always be a gift to us. During these days, we must offer our sacrifices to Jesus. Let us take a moment to pay a close look at ourselves. Are we that prepared for the coming of Jesus? 

Our world today is full of chaos and wars erupting. Will it be the signs that the coming of God is near? Nobody knows when and where the coming will be but we have to prepare.

To prepare means to cleanse our souls, to do good deed and stay away from sin. If we can do this, then we will have goodness grace of God.  – Clea | Helpline PH
