Second Sunday of Lent 2017
‘THIS IS MY BELOVED SON. LISTEN TO HIM.’
Matthew 17 1-13
This week in our gospel story we heard God the Father asking us to ‘Listen to his son, Jesus. It is not easy to listen. There are many distractions in our everyday lives. But this week at the family Mass we had a wonderful simple and fruitful dramatisation of the bible story ‘The Transfiguration of Jesus’ to help us focus and listen to the Word of God. Listening to the word of God reminds us that Jesus was a good person, someone who loved all and who did many ‘acts of love.’ As we took an act of love for Jesus at the end of Mass and placed a symbol of the fish at the base of the cross we know that he will help us to do our best as we pray this week
to make time to be quiet and to pray.
Help us to really listen this week.
May our act of love help us change
and remember that you love us
and are always there to help us. Amen.
