Second Sunday of Lent

Sunday, March 5th


Gn 12: 1-4
Ps 33: 4-5, 18-20, 22
2 Tim 1: 8-10
Mt 17: 1-9


“When they raised their eyes, they saw no one else but Jesus.” Mt. 8

What if you truly lived as a beloved Child of God? What if all the communities of earth (every creature: human, flora and fauna) found blessing in you? How would your heart, mind, and actions be changed? How the world would be changed!

If we truly believed that we are children of God, God’s beloved ones, we would trust our own goodness and act out of it. We would embody unifying, self-emptying, and animating love. We would be on fire with zeal for communion, listen attentively to the Spirit’s luring, and be imbued with cordial charity in our minds and hearts, our words and actions.

If all communities of earth, every creature found blessing in us, we would walk gently on this earth, caring for and advocating for the most vulnerable, building communities of love.
Then, when all raised their eyes, they would see no one else but Jesus, the Christ.


Loving and Gracious God,
Inspire us to live as your beloved children,
Reflecting your great love to all the world.
Lift up those who are burdened and know not their goodness, And allow all communities of earth to find blessings.
We ask this in the name of the Creator, Jesus the Christ,
and the animating Spirit.

Personal Challenge

Pay attention to ways that you can be Christ
for the other through your words and actions.
