The Lord is my light and my salvation.--Psalm 27:1
We started the month with a Gospel about demons and the drowning of swine. We end it with the Transfiguration. A beautiful gift given without being asked for but certainly needed. While we view the Transfiguration with knowledge of Easter, imagine what the apostles felt. This is one of my favorite Gospel events. I picture a dark blue night with the stars shining magnificently. There's the dazzling white of Our Lord's appearance as Moses and Elijah, and heaven and earth, connect for one brief moment. (All that was missing was music!)
I have a final suggestion for this Lent, something that has helped me. Every night, I write down five things for which I'm grateful. Try it. After a while, your outlook will change.
Prayer: I know You are always present, Holy Spirit. Please help me recognize moments of Your grace in my life.
