Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord
"You will do well to be attentive to it, as to a lamp shining in a dark place."
We recently came home to a dark house. The electricity went out while we were away and coming home after dark was a little unnerving. Once we located a flashlight we all gathered around it, not wanting to venture into the blackness beyond the light it cast.
One more thing: Peter was fortunate enough to view the transfiguration and get a glimpse of the glorified Christ. To him, that vision and the message of Christ's salvation was his light in the 'dark' place of earthly life. He tells us it should be ours too, a light of focus and hope!
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I look forward to the day I see you in your glory at the right hand of God! Help me to stay focused on you as I find my way through the vocation of motherhood to which you have called me. In your precious name I pray, Amen.
