Thank you very much Lord Jesus for bringing us always with you like “Peter, James, and his brother John to a high mountain” to pray with you. It is always a grace to be able to pray in you and with you. Not just to tell you what we need or what we feel. Just to be with you is more than enough. After all, when you were transfigured before the three apostles you were “just” praying which is the key to any transfiguration.
So often, we take prayers so lightly, or worst, for granted that we can dismiss it easily when we are busy. Like your gospel yesterday, we often pray to look for the food that perishes and not for YOU. We forget that prayer is a relationship, of being with you, of being one with you that leads to transfiguration.
Continue to bring us along with you on top of the mountain to pray. Teach us to be silent, to stop talking like Peter without knowing what we are saying. Most of all, teach us to listen to you always. To set aside our own agenda and plans in life so that your will is done not ours. May we be transfigured in your heart and person, O Lord Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit for the glory of the Father. Amen. Fr. Nicanor F.
