A special friendship LUKE 9:28–36
This second Sunday of Lent, today’s gospel presents the Transfiguration. Jesus took Peter, James and John with Him up the mountain. I am struck by this careful, specific selection of disciples. It is always a unique situation. God also made a specific choice of Abram.
The chosen disciples were privileged. Their choosing was made with special deliberation by Jesus. Like Abram in the first reading, they too were selected to experience the great and awesome presence of the Lord on the mountain.
