Second Sunday of Lent
Blessed little Easter!
Of You my heart has spoken: Seek His Face.
It is Your Face, O Lord, that I seek;
hide not Your Face from me.
O God, who have commanded us
to listen to Your beloved Son,
be pleased, we pray,
to nourish us inwardly by Your word,
that, with spiritual sight made pure,
we may rejoice to behold Your glory.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.
Genesis 12:1-4 (The call of Abraham)
Psalm 33:4-5, 18-20, 22 “Lord, let Your mercy be on us as we place our trust in You”
2 Timothy 1:8-10 (God has saved us and called us to be holy)
+Matthew 17:1-9 (The Transfiguration)
It’s one thing
to admire Shekhinah glory,
to be overwhelmed,
the power that brought God
to Mary’s womb.
The three men swooned,
their souls not strong enough
to bear the glorious fear.
The Lord drew near,
took hold of them,
and led them
as He did their father,
into a life
beyond their wildest dreams.
Do I let God expand my horizons?
Am I prepared to follow Him out of my comfort zone, through suffering,
to the fulfillment of His glorious promise?
