Second Sunday of Lent: Clothed in Light
Below is a meditation and reflection to help you on your Lenten journey and to draw closer to Jesus.
Begin with this prayer: Jesus, help me to trust you to envelop me daily with your light and grace.
SCRIPTURE MEDITATION: Read slowly, 3-4 times. Allow the words of Scripture to wash over your mind and heart. Allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you through this passage.
“The LORD said to Abram: ‘Go forth from the land of your kinsfolk and from your father's house to a land that I will show you. I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, so that you will be a blessing.’” Genesis 12:1-2
REFLECTION QUESTION: Allow yourself to sit with these questions for a while, being attentive to how the Lord is speaking in your heart.
As you continue this journey of Lent, how has the Lord revealed his blessings to you? Recall concrete examples of the physical and spiritual blessings he has showered upon you. How do these blessings transform your heart so that you are a blessing to others?
SCRIPTURE MEDITATION: Read slowly, 3-4 times. Again, allow the words of Scripture to wash over your mind and heart. Let the Holy Spirit speak to you through this passage.
“Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them; his face shone like the sun and his clothes became white as light. [...] Then Peter said to Jesus in reply, ‘Lord, it is good that we are here.’” Matthew 17:1-2,4
The Lord leads us to a place of intimacy with Himself, and in that intimacy he transforms us in His light and goodness. Thinking about Jesus present in the Eucharist, ask Him to lead you to intimacy with His heart. Rest in that heart, and say with the disciples, “Lord, it is good that I am here.”
Remain in silence with the Lord. Allow Him to speak in the silence, in your heart. Receive His presence. If it helps, write down what you sense the Lord communicating to you during this time of prayer.
SUNDAY MASS CONNECTION
At every Mass, Jesus offers himself to the Father for us. We can always join our own offerings with Jesus at Mass. This Sunday, offer your longing to be clothed in Christ so that you become a blessing to others, just like Jesus.
