Second 'Transfiguration' Sunday of Lent
In today’s readings we have a fairly full picture put before us for the Old Testament and the New. The figure of Abraham taking his only son to be the sacrifice asked for by God. In real life most parents would give their lives to save their child. The gospel reading is the transfiguration of Jesus in the presence of Peter, James and John. It’s all summed up in the second reading, “God did not spare his only Son.”
I read these as three quick summaries of the relationship between God and humankind. 1) The challenges we meet are sometimes beyond us. 2) The transfiguration and consolation are at the end of life, the reward. 3) Our plans are ‘our’ plans, God sees things differently for all of us. What, we do not know, how, we do not know but He will not disappoint us.
