SCRIPTURE

While he was still speaking, a cloud came and cast a shadow over them, and they became frightened when they entered the cloud. Then from the cloud came a voice that said, "This is my chosen Son; listen to him." - Lk 9:34-35

How do we know Mary was conceived without sin?

Immaculate Conception. When Adam and Eve disobeyed God, they committed the first (Original) sin and their descendants (us) were all born with the stain of Original Sin. We also have personal sins we commit. We are not full of grace until we are baptized. Of course after baptism we still commit sin. At that point we need the Sacrament of Penance to get back to a state of grace. For Gabriel to say Mary was full of grace means that she was without sin, even Original Sin. God granted Mary this gift since she was to be the mother of the Savior. She was a pure vessel for carrying Christ in her womb.

Luke 9:28-36,

Transfiguration of the Lord

 

The Transfiguration of the Lord is one of the most spectacular events in Scripture. Jesus took Peter, John and James up a mountain to pray. While there, Jesus was transformed and became dazzling. Elijah and Moses appeared and the three discussed Jesus’ travel to Jerusalem and what awaited him there: his death and resurrection. A cloud came over them and the Apostles heard a heavenly voice say, “This is my chosen Son, listen to him.” This Gospel shows that Jesus was a man of prayer. In fact, one interpretation is that this was a glimpse into Jesus’ prayer. He was girding himself for the final trip to Jerusalem and what awaited him and drew prayerful comfort from the great  prophets.  Often we turn to prayer only in times of trouble or danger but, by example, Jesus showed us that prayer is something for us to learn and to do regularly. When we do so, our prayer reaches a higher level and a greater meaning. By listening, we learn to hear God’s voice in us.

 

SANCTUARY LAMPS ARE AVAILABLE FOR A DONATION OF $10.00. PLEASE CALL THE RECTORY TO REQUEST ONE IN MEMORY OF YOUR LOVED  ONES. GOD BLESS YOU.
