Second Sunday of Lent
"Rabbi, it is good that we are here!"- Mark 9:5
(From today's holy Gospel)
Excerpt below from: Letters To A Brother Priest (pg 9)
Co-authored by Rev Fr Vincent Martin Lucia and Rev Msgr Josefino Ramirez
"Peter, James and John witnessed the Transfiguration of Christ on
. The whole world will witness the glorious transfiguration of Christ in
the Blessed Sacrament. Mount Tabor
It will have the exact opposite effect of the bombing of
. At the
transfiguration of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament, there will be an
explosion of divine energy which
will release the power of His love and renew the face of the earth. Then the
world will see Real Power! All will be made well. All will belong to His Heart.
All will be made one. Nagasaki
In the meantime, there are five graces we receive each time we visit Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. By His glorious wounds we are the ones who are transfigured and changed through His healing love. Restoration, sanctification, transformation, reparation and salvation are the graces being poured out graciously upon us with each holy hour we make.
Like Peter... this is why we should exclaim in His Divine Presence, 'Lord, how good it is for us to be here!'"
"The Blessed Sacrament is the first and supreme object of our worship. We must preserve in the depths of our hearts a constant and uninterrupted, profound adoration of this precious pledge
of Divine Love." - St Mary Euphrasia Pelletier
