Divine explosion: +Second Sunday of Lent+ ...

 Second Sunday of Lent
"Christ showed His disciples the glory of His radiance
to which He configures those who are His." - St Thomas Aquinas

Fra Angelico
"Through your Transfiguration, O Christ, 
you returned Adam's nature to its original splendor, 
restoring its very elements to the glory 
and brilliance of Your divinity." - Byzantine Liturgy

"Christian faith's steady gaze upon Jesus 
transforms us here and now." - Fr Hans Urs von Balthasar

For over all, his glory will be shelter and protection: 
shade from the parching heat of day, 
refuge and cover from storm and rain (Isaiah 4:6).


Excerpt below from:  Letters To A Brother Priest (pg 9) 
Co-authors:  Rev Fr Vincent Martin Lucia/Rev Msgr Josefino Ramirez

"Peter, James and John witnessed the Transfiguration of Christ on Mount Tabor. The whole world will witness the glorious transfiguration of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. 

It will have the exact opposite effect of the bombing of Nagasaki. 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.

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. 

Restorationsanctificationtransformationreparation 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 constant and uninterrupted,
profound adoration of this precious pledge 
of Divine Love." - St Mary Euphrasia Pelletier

Homily for the Second Sunday of Lent (Msgr Charles Pope)
