March 15 Weekly Reflection

03-15-2020Weekly Reflection

Adults/Teens: Jesus wants something more than hospitality from the Samaritan woman. He desires her to be a disciple. Jesus desires that of us all. If we truly desire for the hunger and thirst in us to be quenched, then we need to look no further than our Savior. He gives us the Spirit to fill our souls. Jesus assures us, " I am He." This Lent, let us drink in His Everlasting gift- it is sure to satisfy our every need.

Adults/Teens: This week, our Gospel message takes us to the Transfiguration of Jesus. We meet Peter, James, and John with Christ on the mountain. As Jesus prayed, an incredible miracle occurs, Jesus is Transfigured and the men get a glimpse of His Glorified Body. This event scared the Apostles that were there, in fact, Jesus had to assure them that things were alright. Peter declares that because this event is so amazing, they should make tents and live there! This response is so human, so logical; "things are great, lets do what we can to keep them that way."

Adults/Teens: How awesome it was for Simeon and Anna to recognize Jesus as the Christ as soon as they saw Him! And yet, Simeon tells Mary that many will not recognize Him and that it will be a source of great frustration. Today we have the opportunity to recognize Christ within our midst, just as Simeon and Anna did 2000 years ago. Christ is here; present with us in the Eucharist, in the Word, and in our priest as God's representative. Let's glorify Him on this day of Christ's Presentation!
