On this second Sunday of Lent we hear from God the Father Himself proclaiming to the terrified disciples on the top of the mountain:
“𝙏𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙞𝙨 𝙢𝙮 𝙘𝙝𝙤𝙨𝙚𝙣 𝙎𝙤𝙣; 𝙡𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙣 𝙩𝙤 𝙃𝙞𝙢.”
Pretty big deal, right? The Gospels are not myth or legend, but eye-witness accounts written by the disciples that knew and walked with Jesus during His time on earth. From Luke’s Gospel, we hear about the experience where Jesus’ body is illuminated by light (Transfigured) as He transcends space and time in conversing with Moses and Elijah.
Our very bodies are something good, as declared by the Catholic faith. We can degrade the body or we can obsessively worship the body—by the truly Catholic stance is honoring the body because we are our bodies; we are a body and soul composite, destined to follow Christ in the illumination of heavenly life.
The question of who Jesus is, His very identity, is so important. If we miss this piece—and the goodness of His earthly body — we miss the point of Christianity.
We hope to see you at the weekend Mass times where Father Don is preaching or stop by and visit Jesus at the Blessed Sacrament Chapel or at daily Mass during the week.
To prepare our hearts to come to Holy Mass this weekend, consider watching the short clip on the Flocknote email from Bishop Barron’s newest series 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘊𝘳𝘦𝘦𝘥: 𝘞𝘩𝘰 𝘪𝘴 𝘑𝘦𝘴𝘶𝘴?
