Church of the Home for Saturday, March 12

The Transfiguration of Jesus

This weekend's Gospel recalls the Transfiguration. According to the Gospel accounts, Jesus took three disciples—Peter, James, and John—on Mount Tabor to pray. While they were praying, his appearance was changed by a brilliant white light that radiated from him and his clothing. Moses and Elijah, the greatest prophets of the Old Testament, appeared with Jesus, and a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.”


Celebrate the Feast of the Transfiguration in these ways:

  • Reflect on the Scripture:

    1. Have you ever had an experience of God that transformed your life? Have you experienced an awe-inspiring moment in your life? What happened or where were you?

    2. How are you experiencing transfiguration this Lenten season?

    3. How do you make yourself available to listen to Jesus each day? What steps can you take to open yourself and your Church of the Home more to his “voice” throughout the day?

    4. Jesus’ physical transformation seems to be a ‘sneak preview’ of the glory of God found in Him. Moses and Elijah stand nearby and talk with Jesus. What would you say is the significance of Moses and Elijah’s presence here?

  • Pray a decade of the Luminous mysteries.

  • Serve vanilla ice cream for dessert or a special treat, remembering that Jesus’ face and clothing were whiter than snow (represented by the ice cream).
