|He was transfigured before their eyes and his
clothes became dazzlingly white. (Mark 9:2-3)
"This is the remedy to fix my gaze on You, Incarnate Word, hanging on the Cross. As
soon as You see a humble soul looking at You in this way, you are quickly moved to look at
it, and the effect of Your divine glance is like that of a ray of sunshine on the earth;
it warms it and prepares it to bring forth fruit. This is the way You act, O Divine Word,
who by the light of Your glance, drain my soul of all its pride, and consume it in Your
fire. No one acquires humility if he does not fix his gaze on You, O Word, on the
Cross." ... St. Mary Magdalen dei Pazzi

Talk about today's scriptures with a friend after Mass.
Father of light,
in you is found no shadow of change but only the fullness of life and limitless truth.
Open our heart to the voice of Your Word. and free us from the original darkness that
shadows our vision.
Restore our sight that we may look upon your Son who calls us to repentance and a change
of heart, for He lives and reigns with you for ever and ever.
