The three disciples were on the mountain with Jesus when he was transfigured. “His clothes became dazzling white, such as no one on earth could bleach them.” And they saw their Master in the company of the two great leaders of the Jewish faith, Moses and Elijah. Then they heard a voice: “This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!” St. Mark closes his report of this experience on the mountaintop with these words, “Suddenly, when they looked around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus.” Jesus was all they had and Jesus was all they needed. When they gave him their undivided attention, their lives were filled with his power and their witness touched the entire world and is still touching it today. Are you listening? Will you be obedient?
