Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord
Mark 9:2-10

If you wish to grow ivy, you need to remember that in the first year, it sleeps; the second year, it creeps; and the third year, it leaps.

I thought how true this can be of our spiritual life.

First, we are formed; then, we are informed; and finally, we are transformed.

On this feast of the Transfiguration, we need to ask ourselves where we are in our relationship with God. Are we sleeping, creeping or leaping? Where are we on our journey in striving for holiness?
