(2nd Sunday of Lent, A)
The LORD said to Abram (prefiguring Jesus), “I will bless you; I will make your name great, so that you will be a blessing.” “All the communities of the earth shall find blessing in you.” Gn 12:1-4a
A couple thousand years later another voice spoke. This time, God spoke to Jesus on the mountain, as he was transfigured before his disciples, saying, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.” Mt 17:1-9
The Blessing! The Command!
And in Him, we all find blessing!
Jesus Christ our Lord!
