SECOND SUNDAY in LENT

The Transfiguration in Sunday's Gospel represents both the promise and its fulfillment!  Jesus' clothes become dazzling as fire!  
A terrifying darkness closes in, just as it had with Abram.  And within the darkness God's voice repeats the covenant words:

This is My chosen Son; listen to him.

In the cross and resurrection, the covenant would finally be fulfilled.  The result: you and I do not have to offer more and more sacrifices in order to achieve this fulfillment. We only have to let ourselves be joined to Jesus in his loving response to the Father.  How do we do this?  We begin at Baptism.  We continue it in each Mass, each communion we receive.  We say "amen" to the covenant, so many times broken, but now established forever as the 'new and everlasting covenant' of love, the cross and resurrection, received in the Eucharist.

Welcome to Lent!
