Scripture Readings & Homilies Jake Saul

As Peter, James and John saw Jesus’ divinity revealed their attitudes to Jesus must have been transformed just as they saw Jesus was transformed. We could say that is what Lent is all about, transforming ourselves and our attitudes so that we can see Jesus more clearly. During this season of Lent we examine our lives to see where we stand before God and each other. The Collect (Alternative Opening Prayer) for Mass today expresses beautifully our hopes for Lent to our heavenly Father. "Proverbs 18:24 NIV A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother."

The themes of the readings are that we need to take time to get to know the people in our lives because the apostles had to get to know Jesus better while he was alive to tell about him after he had died.

From this reading i learned how important people really are and that we always need people in our lives whether we want them or not. We have to be open and accepting to everyone so that we can be accepted by them too.

If i were asked to give a reflection on the readings i would want to focus on forgiving people for the wrong that they may have done to you and try to see things from their point of view. People will always do you wrong, but becoming angry and not listening to them will not help make you feel better. We have to talk our issues with people out or they will never be solved.
