TIME AND ETERNITY

Today we are witness to Jesus' Transfiguration; together with Peter, James, John, Moses, and Elijah, we get a glimpse of the glory of the Risen Christ. This mountain top experience inspires hope in our hearts for our own journey which God has promised, leads to eternal life, for us, and for all creation.


Paul also encourages us in this hope through his letter to Timothy: "He saved us and called us to a holy life...according to his own design and the grace bestowed on us in Christ Jesus before time began (2Tim 1:9)" As we live into the heart of God during this beautiful, holy, bewildering, sometimes frustrating journey in this world, our eternal life is always and already known in the love of God which always being poured out in Christ Jesus, our Lord. Our whole life is a participation in the life of God. Whether we are standing in the desert thirsting for signs of God's presence, like last week's Gospel, or basking in the light of God's glory with full confidence in our own resurrection life, we are always and everywhere immersed in God's love. Every step in our life's journey is an opportunity to share God's love with the world, especially with our brothers and sisters in most need. Every minute of time is waiting to be transfigured into a moment of eternity.


Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.
