SECOND SUNDAY OF LENT — Year C
Gospel: Luke 9:28-36
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.
Jesus took Peter, John and James, and went up onto a mountain to pray. While Jesus was praying, his face changed in appearance as well as the clothes he wore which became dazzlingly white. Suddenly two people were talking with him – Moses and Elijah. They appeared in glory and spoke of the passage which Jesus was about to fulfill in Jerusalem. Peter and the others had already fallen into a deep sleep; but awakening, they saw Jesus’ glory and likewise saw the two people who were standing near to him. When these were leaving, Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, how good it is for us to be here. Let us set up three booths, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” (Peter did not really know what he was saying.) While Peter was speaking, a cloud came and overshadowed them, and the disciples grew fearful as the others entered it. Then from the cloud came a voice which said, “This one is my own, my Chosen One. Listen!” When the voice fell silent, Jesus was there alone. The disciples kept quiet, telling nothing of what they had seen at that time to anyone.
The Good News as spoken through Luke.
