Gospel Reflection – 2nd Sunday of Lent – Cycle B – Mark  9:2-10

In today’s remarkable Gospel event, known as the transfiguration, Jesus revealed His divine glory to His disciples. The dazzling transformation of His appearance, accompanied by the presence of the revered prophets Elijah and Moses, left the disciples awestruck.
As we reflect on this passage, let us recognise the significance of Jesus as the fulfillment of the Law represented by Moses, and the Prophets represented by Elijah. The heavenly voice affirmed Jesus as the beloved Son, urging us to listen to Him.
The Transfiguration serves as a pivotal moment in Jesus’ ministry, foreshadowing His impending sacrifice and resurrection. It invites us to contemplate the mystery of His identity and the transformative power of encountering the divine.
May this passage deepen your understanding of Christ’s majesty.

The Lord be with you .           
And with your spirit
A reading from the Gospel according to Mark  (9:2-10 )
Glory to you, O Lord

Jesus took with him Peter and James and John and led them up a high mountain where they could be alone by themselves. There in their presence he was transfigured: his clothes became dazzlingly white, whiter than any earthly bleacher could make them.
Elijah appeared to them with Moses; and they were talking with Jesus. Then Peter spoke to Jesus. ‘Rabbi‘, he said it is wonderful for us to be here; so let us make three tents, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.’
He did not know what to say; they were so frightened. And a cloud came, covering them in shadow; and there came a voice from the cloud,
‘This is my Son, the Beloved. Listen to him.‘ Then suddenly, when they looked round, they saw no one with them any more but only Jesus.
As they came down the mountain he warned them to tell no one what they had seen, until after the Son of Man had risen from the dead. They observed the warning faithfully, though among themselves they discussed what ‘rising from the dead‘ could mean.

The Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
