Gospel Reflection for February 24, 2nd Sunday of Lent

While Jesus was praying, his face changed in appearance and his clothes became dazzling white.  Suddenly two men were talking with him—Moses and Elijah.

Luke 9.29-30

The dazzling, transforming light suggests divine presence.  As he prays, Jesus’ inner life and light become transparent in his outward appearance, just as our values and commitments show through in our bodies over our lifetimes.  His spirit and body are one.  Two great prophets of Israel’s past come alive in Jesus’ consciousness to lead him on as he prepares to set his face for Jerusalem.

Who do you know whose spirit seems transparent in his or her face or body? What do you hope shows forth in you?
