PoC-12 2nd Sunday of Lent: The Power of the Cross Lenten Meditation

The Cross of Christ Unites. . .the Temporal and Eternal

The Way of Perfection by St. Teresa of Avila - Audio Mp3 Audio 3Steps to Take as You Follow Christ

Ask—How does the “light” of Christ shine into the darkness of my world?

Seek— Realize that when we follow Jesus we see the cross in a new light; we see everything anew where once we could only curse the darkness.

Knock—Meditate on 2 Peter 1:17,19.

..the voice was borne to him by the Majestic Glory, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased” You will do well to pay attention to this as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

What would happen if you followed his advice to keep the Transfiguration before you as a “lamp shining in a dark place”?

Transform Your Life—Many times we think of our lives as a combination of missed opportunities and mistakes with a few good choices. Applying the lesson of the Transfiguration challenges us to not be so quick to judge negatively but to take a more accepting view of the cross in our own lives. “It is good that we are here” right now, where we are—no matter how it might seem to us at the moment.
