10.30am to
& Before the Vigil
Sundays before
the Mass
here’s an air of
anxiety in our scripture readings at the
liturgy today. God shows
Abram (before he became
Abraham) that he will stand
at the top of a lineage with
many descendants and that
he will take possession of
the land. But Abram is still
worried about the future:
“My Lord, how am
I to know that I
shall inherit it?”
And God has to
reassure Abram,
to keep him persevering in faith.
Both Abram and Peter are
privileged to be in the presence of God, yet they are
worried about the road
ahead and whether or not
they will really see things
through. Sound familiar?
No matter how strong our
faith is, we still have moments when we wonder
what it’s all about, whether
he same is
Peter, James and
John. Jesus gives
them a real boost to the
their faith by letting them
see him being transfigured
on the mountain top, talking
with Moses and Elijah…a
sure sign that he is from
God. But Peter, like Abram,
is worried that things won’t
always be like this and so
he tries to get three booths
or tents set up to preserve
the atmosphere of the moment.
we can cope with present
difficulties and how we will
match up to the demands
of the future. Of course,
that’s what faith is all about.
If faith were a manual of
answers, an instruction
book that couldn’t fail, then
it would no longer be faith.
When we stop praying for
perseverance in faith we
have become muscular
Christians who think they
can reach heaven by religious effort.
ut as we go through
life we come across
people and events that
strengthen our faith. It
seems that when everything is rumbling on in a
mundane way we suddenly
are given a glimpse of what
lies beyond. These mountain-top experiences boost our faith
because they redirect our hope and
recharge our enthusiasm.
Last week we began Lent by looking at the temptations that lie in
wait for us as we
try to follow Christ. This
week we are given a shot in
the arm as we glimpse
something of the glory of
Jesus in the Transfiguration.
o Lent isn’t just about
sin. It’s also about
faith, promise, perseverance, hope, dreams, compassion , trust, reconciliation and renewal.
Have a Happy Lent!
