Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord

Do you struggle with your prayers? Perhaps you don’t know how to pray or what to say. Or you just repeat the same words of your prayer over and over again, so they have already lost their true meaning. We like to talk when we pray; we want to make sure we have included all our requests to God in the prayer. Did I say everything I wanted to? Did I ask for everything I need? Did I recite all those prayers, or did I leave something out? -- you may wonder. Jesus took Peter, James, and John to the top of mount Tabor on which He was transfigured. What a privilege to be there to see that. There is not much to say, but only to rejoice, to be in awe. But what does Peter do? He starts talking nonsense because he does not know how to react. He wants to say something, but he does not know exactly what. We don’t have to talk much; we don’t need to say all we want. God knows what we need, and He reminds us today: “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.” Don’t always talk -- try to listen.
