Mount Tabor, thought by many to be the mountain of the Transfiguration: Image by BiblePlaces
You still have time to sit down and read the scriptures you'll hear proclaimed at Mass this weekend for the Second Sunday of Lent.
You'll find the readings and commentary on them plus hints for helping children prepare to hear the Word all right here.
The first lesson includes some grisly details about the Lord and Moses walking between the carcasses of sacrificed animals (kids will love this!). The gospel, as it does every year on the Second Sunday of Lent, brings us to the top of the mountain with Jesus, Peter, James and John - and a couple of surprise visitors - for the transfiguration of Christ before their eyes. Take a look at the text and see how this knocked Peter for a loop!
