Gospel Reflection: Transfiguration
(inspired by Matthew 17:1-8, Mark 9:2-8, Luke 9:28-36)
This is my chosen Son; listen to him.
You are God’s chosen Son, O Lord.
Please help us listen
Help us open our hearts to your grace.
Help us believe, help us love.
We are small and
your dazzling glory
hidden in the hum-drum
of our wondrous, everyday lives.
we are sinners,
make us one with you, and let us
bring your life, death and resurrection to all people.
