As we march through Lent it can be easy to think it's all about sacrifice. No chocolate, no alcohol, no meat on Fridays. Yet here, we have the story of the transfiguration. It reminds us of the why behind what we do. We don't fast from dessert to lose weight. We don't donate money or serve others because it's merely a nice thing to do. Lent is about transformation! Peter, James and John trudged up the mountainside behind Jesus, a difficult hike. Despite our best efforts, we also, can be trudging along. But then, Jesus is transformed and they saw his glory! This is no small thing! The diciples witness Jesus in his divine splendor and the entire mountain becomes a spiritual breakthrough. We are all invited into spiritual transformation!
