Going Up the Mountain with Jesus

On the Second Sunday of Lent we see Jesus taking Peter, James and John up on a mountain to pray. Mountain is sometimes used as a metaphor to depict huge challenges that we humans have to surmount, sometimes, on a daily basis, something that we tend to avoid or resist. However, in most Gospel accounts, mountain is a place of prayer and a place where Jesus has transfigured.

True, going up a steep mountain is difficult; confronting problems head on is not fun; and going through any transforming process is no picnic. Yet, atop the mountain, we pray, and we find peace. We meet God and those difficulties are transcended and we experience our own transfiguration as we are strengthened and received assurance that, indeed, the Lord is bigger than the biggest of our problems for He is our light and our only salvation. Come, let us go up the mountain with Jesus and pray. . . where the peak could be found in every heart, our inner sanctuary.  Join our spiritual retreat . . .
