It’s the 2nd Sunday of Lent and we are taken to the Mount of Transfiguration, where God offered Jesus as a gift of glory: “This is my beloved Son,” He said yet again, adding an impassioned plea: “Listen to Him” (Mark 9:7). Every day since then, He continues to offer Jesus to us in the humble form of bread and wine: “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.” Jesus is here. Whether at the in-person Mass times or at the livestream, let us accept Him. Let Him change our hearts. “Lord, I am not worthy to receive you, but you still offer Yourself to me. Help me to embrace You so that my soul may be healed.”
