March 17, 2019 – Thoughts by Rev Kev

Today we reflect on the Transfiguration of the Lord. Lent invites us also to look into our lives for changes. I pray that you may find yourself understanding how you are special in God’s eyes and that through these days of lent you will find God’s loving Mercy. Why are you special? Take a moment to reflect on the readings to-day and understand how we too can be transfigured!
As Abraham looks up into the night sky and sees the radiant stars, God promises him that his descendants will be just as countless. This moves Abraham to put his faith in the Lord. As Peter, John and James look to the mountaintop and see the transfigured Jesus radiating like a star, God makes a promise; “This is my chosen Son.” The Father asks us to put our faith in Christ; “Listen to him.” let us fall silent in these days of Lenten Retreat and in our faith filled adoration, gazing at Jesus alone for the transfiguration that we witness is des-tined to transfigure us; “he will change our lowly body to conform with his glorified body.”
