Jesus took Peter, James and John up to the top of Mt Tabor
Lent is based on Jesus’ forty days in the desert in preparation for His public ministry. In the desert, Jesus was tempted by Satan.
Today we begin the Season of Lent. This is an invitation to conversion and interior renewal to prepare for the greatest feast of Easter. The Church encourages us to purify our hearts and souls and begin again.
Today’s readings remind us that if God grants us something we should show our gratitude by glorifying Him and doing the Divine Will; not running off and ignoring his wishes.
Today’s readings remind us of the importance of the Gospel, because it is the truth. We need the truth, in order to pursue what is truly good in life and not illusions. It is the truth that sets us free.
Today’s reading teach us that this fleeting world is just a stop on the way to a greater and better one, that will last forever. So it is very important to be spiritually detached from passing things.
Wishing everyone a holy Christmas and a truly blessed New Year! I would especially like to thank all our supporters who have made the Divine Mercy Shrine in Chittering a wonderful reality today. Know that you are included in our prayers every day and all Sunday...
