This Sunday, Mark the Evangelist recounts that Jesus took Peter, James and John with him up a high mountain and was transfigured before them in a dazzling display of heavenly light. Elsewhere in the Gospels, Jesus is the light of God and the light of the world. With his passion and death, Jesus entered into the darkness of suffering and death. His Resurrection defeated the power of the darkness of evil forever. With the Risen Christ, the light of truth and love triumph over the darkness of deceit and sin. This is the light that we have received by the grace of our baptism. Like the moon reflects the light of the sun, it is God’s light that we reflect when we witness to goodness, truth and the beauty of holiness. This Lent, let us turn away from any darkness and turn towards the light. May we be light for others.
