The Transfiguration of Our Lord

Tomorrow (August 6) is the feast of the Transfiguration our Lord. In reading the mass readings for today, these verses particularly stand out:

Then from the cloud came a voice that said, “This is my chosen Son; listen to Him.”

Therefore, I am going to pray for the grace to be able to hear the voice of Jesus. I am praying for the grace to not let the many cares of daily life from getting in the way of listening to His voice and paying attention to Him. I don’t know about you, but I can easily get into the habit of letting the craziness of life take over me and I don’t take the time for prayer and spending time with God. How about you? Am I alone in this?

That’s why I need the grace to make time for prayer and reading His Word. In essence, am praying for a deepening of my relationship with the Lord.

I am also praying for this grace for each of you, as well. I pray that you have a deepening of your relationship with Jesus and that you grow ever closer to Him with each new day. May all our minds and hearts be transfigured unto Jesus.

How about you? What is your prayer for this beautiful feast?

Sunday Snippets–A Catholic Carnival

I am happy to be participating in my first Sunday Snippet. A big thanks to This That and the Other Thing blog for hosting!

Here is a brief synopsis of this week’s posts:

On Monday, I offered suggestions on how to honor the Blessed Mother during the Month of August, as it is dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

On Tuesday, I shared my entry for the Simple Woman’s Day Book.

On Wednesday, it was all about organization – organizing kitchen utensils, to be exact. How do you organize yours?

On Thursday, we learned a little bit about Lectio Divina, which is is Latin for praying the scriptures.

On Friday, we were fearless. It is the day dedicated to praying for each other. It was also the feast of the Transfiguration of Our Lord, so my prayer theme was “Listen to Him.”

That was it for this week. I hope you all have a Blessed Sunday and a fabulous week. God bless you.
