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
to you.
Help us open our hearts to your grace.
Help us believe, help us love.
We are small and
we become

Show us
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.
