"FAITH BOOK" offers Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run.  "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

TRANSFIGURATION OF THE LORD – August  6, 2017

Daniel 7: 9-10, 13-14; Psalm 97; 2 Peter 1: 16-19; Matthew 17: 1-9

Jude Siciliano, OP

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

...from the cloud came a voice that said,

"This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased;

Listen to him.’

 

Reflection:

 

We must do our best to listen to Jesus, not only to his words, but his actions as well, for both reveal Jesus’ heart. They tell us about God’s forgiveness, compassion and unfaltering love for us. As we listen closely we also hear Jesus tell us that what has been done for us, we must do for others.

 

So we ask ourselves:

 

  • What efforts do I make to listen to Jesus?

  • What am I hearing these days and how do I plan to respond?
