“While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud cast a shadow over them, then from the cloud came a voice that said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.”
Recall that earlier in Matthew’s Gospel he records that at Jesus’ Baptism God said, “This is My Son the Beloved; my favor rests on him.”
Hear God say to you, “This is My Daughter/Son the Beloved.”
Live today knowing that you are God’s beloved. That provides more dignity that any amount of money, prestige or power can buy!
Heritage word—“Like Jesus we are anointed by the Holy Spirit and sent forth in the power of the Spirit.”
(Sister Mary Kristin, 10th Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
