Weekly Devotion – March 18th

??????????????????????????????

Jesus appears with Moses and Elijah as He is transfigured in this week’s Gospel reading.

Peter must be as shocked as those with him, but in faith he says to Jesus, “Master, it is good that we are here.”

Peter knows this event is a blessing from God, meant for him and the Apostles.

The miracles we experience each day are smaller, but can still be sources of joy for us.

We take time to acknowledge the good God provides for us and continue to express our gratitude to God.

March 17th
2nd Sunday of Lent

St. Patrick
Joseph of Arimathea

1st Reading: Gen 15:5-12, 17-18:
Then Yahweh brought him outside and said to him, “Look up at the sky and count the stars if you can. Your descendants will be like that.” Abram believed Yahweh who, because of this, held him to be an up – right man. And he said, “I am Yahweh who brought you from Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land as your possession.” Then Abram asked, “My Lord, how am I to know that it shall be mine?” Yahweh replied, “Bring me a three year- old heifer, a three-year-old goat, a three-year-old ram, a turtle dove and a young pigeon.”

What a holy time we have entered into this Lent.

The season is truly a gift—it is the Church’s gift to her people—when we as a community of believers renew ourselves in prayer and in devotion through our actions, like fasting and giving alms.

Jesus was “filled with the Holy Spirit” and led out into the desert for forty days.

As we embark upon our own spiritual journey, we ask that God would fill us with the same Holy Spirit to be our guide.

March 10th
1st Sunday of Lent

1st Reading: Dt 26:4-10:
Then the priest shall take the large basket from your hands and place it before the altar of Yahweh, your God, and you shall say these words before Yahweh, “My father was a wandering Aramean. He went down to Egypt to find refuge there, while still few in number; but in that country, he became a great and powerful nation. The Egyptians maltreated us, oppressed us and subjected us to harsh slavery. So we called to Yahweh, the God of our ancestors, and Yahweh listened to us. He saw our humiliation, our hard labor and the oppression to which we were subjected. He brought us out of Egypt with a firm hand, manifesting his power with signs and awesome wonders. And he brought us here to give us this land flowing with milk and honey. So now I bring and offer the first fruits of the land which you, Yahweh, have given me.”
