Gospel reading Mark 9:2-13

It is interesting to note that Jesus had an inner circle of disciples just as he had very close friends whom he loved tenderly. Peter, James and John belonged to this inner circle and Jesus takes them with him to witness his fransfiguration. This miracle can be understood only as an act of God's mercy to strenghten the faith of the disciples. They are given a glimpse of his glory so that the memory of this moment could sustain their faith in the moment of darkness. In fact these were the three who would witness the agony of Jesus in the garden.
Thank you Lord, for you protect and strengthen us when our faith is in peril.
