Father Csaba’s reflection on the on the gospel Tuesday 6 August 2019 The feast of the Transfiguration of our Lord.
"Master, it is good for us to be here;”
Jesus has no secrets , He takes His friends everywhere with him !! He
He shares His glorious meeting with the Saints, but also His blood -sweating with His apostles !! How good it would be if I would dare to share my joys , problems , sufferings , my everyday thoughts with my loved ones , friends, fellow human beings !!
Reading this passage of the gospel lets think about on the one hand do I share my inner inner thoughts with the the ones living around me ?? On the other hand lets ask the question do I accompany my companions on their journey through life ? Do I share in the joys, problems of the people living around me ?
How would I rate myself on a scale from one to ten on the subject of community life ??

The Word of God
Jesus took with him Peter and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray. And while he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became dazzling white. Suddenly they saw two men, Moses and Elijah, talking to him. They appeared in glory and were speaking of his departure, which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem. Now Peter and his companions were weighed down with sleep; but since they had stayed awake, they saw his glory and the two men who stood with him. Just as they were leaving him, Peter said to Jesus, "Master, it is good for us to be here; let us make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah" --not knowing what he said. While he was saying this, a cloud came and overshadowed them; and they were terrified as they entered the cloud. Then from the cloud came a voice that said, "This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!" When the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. And they kept silent and in those days told no one any of the things they had seen.
