Suffering and Transfiguration: A Lenten Reflection
Suffering and transfiguration: A Short Lenten Reflection by Father Michael Najim
Father Michael Najim provides a short video on suffering and transfiguration as a reflection for this second week of our Lenten journey. Suffering is a part of life and there are different types of suffering, including suffering because others suffer. Why does Jesus take His Apostles (Peter, James, and John) up the mountain with Him? Do the sufferings of this life define us? If not, what does define us? Life does not end with suffering. Topics covered include: penance, heaven, the glory of the Resurrection, Lent, being children of God, and the love of God.
