One Minute Reflection – 17 March – Transfigurtion,the Mystery of the Cross

One Minute Reflection – 17 March – The Second Sunday of Lent, Year C

“…Moses and Elijah, who appeared in glory and spoke of his departure, which he was to accomplish at Jerusalem.”…Luke 9:30-31

REFLECTION – “Today, on Mount Tabor, the state of our future life and the Kingdom of joy are mysteriously made manifest.   Today, in an unexpected way, the former messengers of the Old and New Covenants have come together on the mountain beside their God as bearers of a paradoxical mystery.   Today, on Mount Tabor, is sketched out the mystery of the cross which, through death, gives life.   Just as Christ was crucified between two men on Mount Calvary, so He now stands in His divine majesty between Moses and Elijah.   And today’s feast shows us that other Sinai, that mountain far more precious than Sinai by reason of its wonders and events.   With its theophany it far surpasses merely representative and vague divine visions…
Rejoice!   O Creator of all that is, Christ our King, Son of God radiant with light, who have transfigured all creation in Your image and have recreated it in an even better way…  And you, too, rejoice!   O image of the heavenly Kingdom, most holy mount of Tabor, surpassing in beauty all other mountains!   Mount Golgotha and you, O mount of Olives, sing a hymn together and rejoice, sing with one voice of Christ on Mount Tabor and together chant His praises!”… St Anastasius of Sinai (Died c 700) Monkluke 9 30-31 the transfiguration - today on mount tabour - st anastasius of sinai 17 march 2019.jpg

PRAYER – Heavenly Father, teach us to do everything for Your honour and glory.
Grant us the grace to work out our salvation with anxious concern each day of our life. Keep our gaze fixed towards heaven.   Help us as we attempt this Lenten journey to grow in a spirit of penance and sacrifice and to be transfigured, out of love for You, our God. Mary, Holy Mother, the refuge of sinners, be our protector and our guide.   We make our prayer through Jesus in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for all eternity, amen.blessed virgin mary immaculate mother - pray for us - 2 sept 2018.jpg

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
