“Jesus took Peter, James, and his brother, John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them; his face shone like the sun and his clothes became white as light.”
Certainly, the three apostles were startled by what they saw!
When has God ever startled you? –by a surprise visit from a good friend? –by sun on a day that was predicted to be stormy? –by a return to health by someone whose diagnosis was otherwise?
Heritage word—“For the apostolic disciple God speaks in the quiet places of her/his heart at any time and in any place.”
(Sister Mary Kristin, 10th Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
