Fr. Michael's Vlog: 2nd Sunday of Lent
Fr. Michael reflects on the importance of going to a quiet place to pray, just like Jesus took his disciples up the mountain.

In this Sunday's Gospel, we hear the story of Jesus brining Peter, James, and John up the mountain to pray, and then being transfigured before them (Lk 9:28-36). It was during this time of prayer that Jesus appeared to his three disciples in all of his glory.
Fr. Michael focuses his reflection on the first verse, "...He took Peter, James, and John and went up the mountain to pray," (Lk 9:28). We too need to take time out of our day to go to the "mountain" to speak with God. In other words, we must go to a quiet place where we can speak with our Lord without distraction, and what better place is there to do this than a Catholic Church? There we find Jesus truly present in the Eucharist and can be with him in prayer. This is the mountain that we should seek out for prayer.
