Second Sunday of Lent—Year B

Today’s first reading assures us that nothing can take us from the love of God. God is on our side, and we have nothing to fear. Nothing that is now and nothing that is to come can separate us from God. Our Psalm response echoes this belief:                        “And when evil is around me, I have no fear.”    The Gospel gives us a glimpse of our future glory in the Transfiguration. In the midst of the brokenness in the world, we are called to recognize Christ as the beloved Son of God and to listen to him. With him on our side, we have nothing to fear in this world or the next.


Jesus showed the apostles the glory of his life, when God would raise him from the dead. To this day, Jesus shares the glory of God with us.
