Transfiguration Sunday (1)
 
February 26, 2017
Transfiguration of Our Lord Sunday
 
 
Focus Scriptures: 

2 Peter 1:16-21     Matthew 17:1-9

Today’s festival is a bridge between the Advent-Christmas-Epiphany cycle that comes to a close today and the Lent-Easter cycle that begins in several days. On the mount of transfiguration Jesus is revealed as God’s beloved Son, echoing the words at his baptism. This vision of glory sustains us as Jesus faces his impending death in Jerusalem. We turn this week to Ash Wednesday and our yearly baptismal journey from Lent to Easter. Some churches put aside the alleluia at the conclusion of today’s liturgy. This word of joy will be omitted during the penitential season of Lent and will be sung again at Easter (Sundays & Seasons, 2017).

Pursue Peace and Holiness

“Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.”  Hebrews 12:14. Lack of peace in a home, a community, a country or even the world at large can have a devastating effect on relationships among people.  In the face of persecution, Paul is calling the believers not to indulge in passions which can lead to strife, quarrels or broken relationships. In times like these holiness cannot thrive.  Peace is important for spiritual progress and to enjoy the presence of God in our lives.  God is calling us to be holy, therefore we are to pursue peace at all cost, that is, live peaceably with everyone.  Rather than seeking revenge on those who do us wrong, seek peace and aim to be holy, for our Lord is holy. Prayer:  God of peace and holiness, you have called me to pursue peace with everyone because peace is very important for my spiritual journey.  Help me to be at peace with everyone and also to be a peacemaker as the opportunity arises.  Amen.
