A Word from Father Manny S...
We reflect this weekend the Transfiguration of Jesus ( Mk 9:2-12) before Peter, James and John. These disciples were privileged to witness and experience the Divine reality of Jesus on top of the mountain where He transfigured before them. It was a magnificent and remarkable experience for these disciples that Peter ended up saying, "Lord it is good for us to be here! (Mk 9:5)
According to a story I read , One day a man feeling tired and disheartened by life& countless trials and hardships, prayed and complained to God, "Lord why do I have so many mountains and hills to climb in life, he asked. God answered "For you to have a better view, my son."
Yes, at times we are so focus on the level of the world that we find out our life full of anxieties, worries, disappointments and miseries. We all need "Transfiguration moments," moments when we are assured of God's abiding presence and power as we journey through life. Human and weak as we are, we forget, we doubt and we fall.
The memory of God's presence and unfailing care and love will carry us through the valley of tears and deserts of dryness and meaningless life. Once God touched our lives, He will touch us again and again. Let us continue to be open to the stirrings of the Holy Spirit at work in the most simple and ordinary events of our lives. Like St Augustine after embracing a life of grace with God said" my heart is restless O God until it finally rests in you. Amen.
