Transfiguration of Our Lord

23 February 2020

Today's festival is a bridge between the Advent-Christmas-Epiphany cycle that comes to a close today and the Lent-Easter cycle that begins in several days.  On a high mountain Jesus is revealed as God's beloved Son, echoing the words at his baptism.  This vision of glory sustains us as Jesus faces his impending death in Jerusalem.  We turn this week to Ash Wednesday and our yearly baptismal journey from Lent to Easter.  Some churches put aside the alleluia at the conclusion of today's liturgy.  This word of joy will be omitted during the penitential season of Lent and will be sung again at Easter.  Living Grace omits hymns with alleluias and we omit the Hymn of Praise during this time.

Exodus 24:12-18

At Mount Sinai, Moses experienced the presence of God for forty days and forty nights.  The “glory of the Lord” settled on the mountain, and on the seventh day God called out to Moses.  On the mountain God gave Moses the stone tablets inscribed with the ten commandments.

Psalm 2

You are my son; this day have I begotten you (Ps. 2:7)

2 Peter 1:16-21

At the transfiguration, God’s voice was heard, declaring Jesus to be the beloved Son. By the activity of the Holy Spirit, God’s voice continues to be heard through the word of scripture.

Matthew 17:1-9

Shortly before he enters Jerusalem, where he will be crucified, Jesus is revealed to Peter, James, and John in a mountaintop experience of divine glory called the transfiguration.

 

Ash Wednesday

26 February 2020

On Ash Wednesday we begin our forty-day journey toward Easter with a day of fasting and repentance.  Marking our foreheads with dust, we acknowledge that we die and return to the earth.  At the same time, the dust traces the life-giving cross indelibly marked on our foreheads at baptism.  While we journey through Lent to return to God, we have already been reconciled to God through Christ.  We humbly pray for God to make our hearts clean while we rejoice that “now is the day of salvation.”  Returning to our baptismal call, we more intentionally bear the fruits of mercy and justice in the world.
