Have you seen Jesus this Week?
When is the last time you’ve seen God? In today’s Gospel, we hear the story of the Transfiguration. Though they had followed Him closely, Peter, James, and John never could’ve imagined what awaited them at the top of Mount Tabor. They were given the grace to see what men and women had waited thousands of years to see: the face of God (Luke 10:23-24). Jesus’ glory was revealed and the veil was pulled back so that these three men could see a glimpse of His majesty. Throughout the Gospels, Jesus continually invites His followers to be witnesses of what they have seen. In the heroic witness of the martyrs, we find men and women who are so convinced of what they have seen that they are willing to lay down their lives for Jesus.
In today’s #ShareJesus, Fr. Dave Pivonka invites us to gaze on the face of Jesus. We can see His face in Scripture, in the Sacraments, in each other, and in the poor. Where will you look for Him today?
Being that it’s Sunday, it’s a wonderful day to be thankful and to reflect upon the week. I hope that you can look back at this past week and thank God for something he has done in your life. I hope that #ShareJesus has again been a part of that.
Evangelize today by being social with the Gospel. #ShareJesus today on Social Media. Aim for at least two posts today: One with the video, one without always using #ShareJesus.
Before you invite others to see Jesus, make sure that you’ve taken time yourself to gaze at Him today.
Our lives are profoundly changed when we’ve seen Jesus
On Social Media today consider these questions:
- What is one time when you saw the face of Christ in your life?
- Where do you look to see Jesus?
- What do you see when you look at Him?
Don’t forget on Facebook, please share the video from our Facebook page. This way you’ll get a lot more views than if you share a Youtube link on Facebook.
From Twitter please use the Youtube link http://youtu.be/TLMhEX_vuQ0 with your posts and don’t forget to RT our tweets.
Taking it Offline
- In mass today, ask Jesus for the grace to see Him in the Eucharist.
- Think of one person who reflects Christ to you. Let them know how you see Jesus in them.
- Spend some time praying and meditating on an image of Christ (any artwork will do)
