When everything becomes clear
WHEN EVERYTHING BECOMES CLEAR
For three years, the disciples followed Jesus on the road of Galilee. They heard him speak of his Father, they listened to his parables and teachings. They learned many things and they knew that he was not an ordinary man. And then, one day he took with him three of them, Peter, John and James led them up to the mountain. He was transfigured before them, his face shining like the sun, his clothes bright as the light, Moses and Elijah at his sides. His disciples were in awe and wanted that moment to last longer. At this moment a voice said: “this is my beloved Son, with whom I am pleased; listen to Him.” They went down with Jesus, changed by what had just happened on the mountain. Even the way they looked at Jesus was transformed. The same thing happens to us when we are touched by the light of Christ. We are changed and we look at Jesus Christ with new eyes.
Like everybody else, we do experience deceit, sadness, even anger. In those moments, we turn our eyes towards ourselves and our needs. In those moments, our problems are choking us, we are in the darkness and it is difficult for us to see the light in ourselves. How to resurface and take a deep breath to be able to open our eyes to the light of the Risen Christ and ear the words of God in our lives?
Lent is the time to make an effort to turn our eyes and our hearts to God. Then we will be able to see the light that transforms our understanding at what is going on in our lives, to live it in serenity and to let us be touched by the One whom is recognized by the Father, as his beloved Son. This light could sometimes be small and trembling, sometimes be like a burning sun but it will always be there.
Then, we will be light for all of those who need it. Becoming little lights that illuminate and announce the presence of Christ, living today in our world.
