As this Sunday, the Second Sunday of Lent, we hear Luke’s description of the transfiguration of Jesus, the Sacred Heart Choir learned a song at rehearsal last night by Bob Hurd, “Transfigure Us O Lord.”  We also sang through this classic, Lord, You Have Come to the Seashore.

Is your Lent joyful? Lent provides a wonderful time of consoling mercy. To be able to ask for forgiveness over and over with the blessed assurance of absolution, of reconciliation. Lent juxtaposes two truths: we are sinners and we are children of God. The more we seek His mercy, the more we experience His love.
