On This Day The Earth Shall Ring


Vinh Danh Thiên Chúa trên trời. Xuống đem bình an cho dương thế.

Hãy trông về, trông về hang đá Bê-lem. Đây Chúa sinh ra như bé thơ trong cơ hàn.

Muôn tiếng tung hô vang khắp nơi: Nhạc muôn đời.

Tha thiết kêu xin: Ơn thứ tha bài đọc mùa thái hoà.

As we enter this Lenten season, we recall the day Jesus took Peter, James, and John to a high mountain. And he was transfigured before them; his face shone like the sun and his clothes became white as light. Then from the cloud came a voice that said, "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him."

The temptations that Jesus faces are those that many of us struggle with every day: materialism, ego, and power. Click here for resources to help us on our Lenten Journey.

Please join us at Mass as we celebrate this holy season and find ways we can be inspired by Jesus's love.

Reflection by Vanessa Barrett

Coming Down the Mountain

I love this Gospel passage! 

 “Jesus… led them up a high mountain apart by themselves.”  What a great hike that would be.  Most of my encounters with Jesus can be that combination of excitement and a little fear.  It’s not always easy when Jesus invites you on a journey.  Sometimes it can be daunting, like hiking up a high mountain.  I’m a little older than most, not in the best shape of my life, and I have asthma so throw all of that into the mix and I’m a little nervous about the high mountain. I could say the same about my spiritual life.

But it’s not about my capabilities. Hey, I’m with Jesus.  It doesn’t really matter if I achieve it to the top or pass away on the path.  God has me, he invited me and I have confidence in him and his plan. That tenacity gives me freedom from my shortcomings and the tasks ahead. 

So I take the time to be with the Lord, apart by myself. And in the quiet moments of prayer, or on a retreat, or in front of the Blessed Sacrament, I find his “dazzling white” glory.  I’m in love with Jesus.  I don’t want to leave.  I echo Peter in saying, “Rabbi, it is good that we are here.”  Let’s stay here and live here.

Reality check - we may not be of this world, but we do live here.  

Thus, I’m coming down the mountain.  I’m fortified from my encounter with the Lord.  My heart is filled with joy, courage and energy all at the same time.  Jesus is risen from the dead. Now is the time to tell others.  It is good that we are here at St. Joseph parish in 2024.  Are you ready to engage our little corner of the world?
