Second Sunday of Lent.

"Seeing is believing” we often say. At the Transfiguration Peter, James and John were given this amazing visual experience and saw Jesus glorified. How could they not believe? Yet their faith did not fully develop until after the Resurrection. That sounds a bit like us doesn’t it? No matter what we’ve experienced, the prayers that have been answered, the blessings we’ve received we still have those moments of doubt. That is perfectly normal and human.
What we should do is follow the instruction of the Divine Voice to the disciples (and to us!): “This is my son, the beloved. Listen to him.” As we make our journey through Lent perhaps we can try and truly listen to what Jesus is telling us and do what he asks.
