As a help to our Lenten observance, every second Sunday of the sacred season, the Church gives us the account of the Lord’s Transfiguration.
We are called to take the hard and oftentimes long road of “loving others back” into the consolation of faith and into the fold of the Church.
Lent is an opportunity to mark the calendar, start fresh, and renew some things in our lives.
This Sunday at Mass, believers continue to walk through Saint Mark’s Gospel. Last weekend, the Gospel recounted how the Lord Jesus exorcised a bad spirit in the synagogue of Capernaum.
The prophets in ancient Israel were summoned by God to speak his words. They were oftentimes words of warning, admonishment, and correction, as well as renewal, blessing, and hope.
A call to repentance challenges the status quo. It calls on people to pause and evaluate where things are and where they’d want them to be.
