Last weekend Christ took us with him into the dessert. Our 40 days continue as we journey through this season of Lent together as a parish family. This weekend we witness the transfiguration of Christ in our Gospel.
In a most beautiful and special way, every time we come to gather for Mass, a transformation takes place. As we listen to Sacred Scripture, we are transformed by the Word of God. As we humbly approach to receive Christ under the form of bread, through the eyes of faith we know it is Christ. Stop and think about it. Christ is in our midst, His body, blood, soul and divinity. We come to be transformed and to be nourished. That is why we come to Mass, for His real presence can be found nowhere else.
It is my prayer that the celebration of the Eucharist draws each of us closer to God, and to one another.
Emerging from a pandemic and now watching the devastation unfold in the Ukraine, we need one another. We need Christ to be refueled. And we need Christ to transform hearts in the world in which we live.
May God bless and keep safe each of you and those that you love.
