Almost a year ago I travelled with forty some others throughout the Holy Land. When we arrived at the Mount of the Transfiguration we waited for vans to take us on up. We were just one of several tour groups preparing for the ascent. I couldn’t help but think that Jesus and his three companions climbed Mt. Tabor in less time than it took for us to finally arrive at the top. It was only when I allowed the stress of the wait to dissipate that I could appreciate the setting and the view below. What a sight it must have been for Peter, James, and John to behold Jesus in his glory, along with Moses and Elijah! It must have taken some nudging for Jesus to get them down from that mountaintop experience. Jesus assures us that even in the most mundane situations of life traces of resurrection can be found. May this Lenten journey deepen our faith.
