Matthew 17:1-9
1. The transfiguration experience was one that, for Jesus, clarified his relationship with his Father and strengthened him for the future. It was also a moment of deep revelation for the disciples. What have been the experiences, the moments of insight, which for you have clarified your sense of who you are, and what is your relationship with God?
2. The disciples were prepared for the experience by getting an invitation from Jesus to come apart, to withdraw to the mountain. Have there been times when going apart has been an important element in preparing you for a deep experience?
3. On the mountain the disciples saw Jesus in a new way. His appearance changed. Sometimes in friendship there are moments of sharing in which we get to know a friend in a new and deeper way. Have you had that experience in human friendship, or in your relationship with Jesus and God. Recall when that happened, and what it was like for you.
4. After their special experience the disciples came down the mountain again. We cannot live each day at the level of special spiritual experiences, but the memory of them can strengthen us in difficult times. What memories encourage you in time of trouble?

“We are always on the side of life”-Archbishop Diarmuid Martin
Speaking at a Mass for the protection of life, which took place on 1 July in Dublin as thousands gathered for the annual Rally for Life march, Archbishop Diarmuid Martin said, “Being pro-life means that we are always on the side of life and life in its fullness. It means that we fight to avoid the emptiness of so many visions of our society and that we continually remember that we ourselves need conversion to Christ who is light and life. As believers in Jesus who is life and light, we must be in the forefront in doing what we can so that everyone can flourish in his or her own life. We are convinced of the value of every human life from the moment of conception until the moment of natural death.” Read the full text of Archbishop Martin’s homily on
