Jesus is the Word. He is spoken first and last. In Christ, we see the definitive expression of God’s love. The Transfiguration of the Lord was unsettling for those who witnessed it. How could the Jesus whom they knew so well be so much more than what they had seen? Gracious God, help me to be defined by the Word. Mary I see in Christ your complete and entire revelation of love. May I be inspired even by what may first cause fear.
