Breaking Open the Word
Suggested text for faith sharing: Today’s Gospel
Step One: Listen to the Word
As you heard the story of the Transfiguration proclaimed today, what particular words did you notice? What line in this reading touched your heart?
Step Two: Look into Your Life
Question for Children: Share about a time when you felt especially close to God or Jesus.
Question for Youth: Have you ever had a “mountain top” experience where you felt exceptionally close to God? How was your life changed by that experience?
Question for Adults: Perhaps this reading calls us, not to cling to the familiar, but to leave the comforts of the parish and reach out to the world around us. In your neighborhood or community, who is waiting to hear the Good News?
