Father Mike’s Weekly Message

The Gospel this week, tells us that Jesus took Peter, James, and John up a high mountain and was transfigured before them. Why do you suppose he took just those three and not the other nine? Why not all 12 to witness such an incredible event. Well, we may never know. But what we do know is that God is free to choose whom He wants to do the things He wants us to do. Everyone is asked to do something. And some things will be bigger and more difficult to do and comprehend as to why we are being asked, than other things. But one of the main purposes of today’s Gospel, is to show us that God always does things in a big way. The theophany we heard, that is the voice of God, tells us to listen to Him. And so, we all now hear Him, and we all now must follow the way of Jesus as was commanded by the Father. “Listen to Him”.
