On Friday we think about and listen to the gospel reading for Sunday. This is so when we go to Mass we will better understand when Father reads from the Bible and shares his homily. The reading was Luke 9 : 28 – 36 and the title was The True Glory of Jesus.
First Mrs de Koning read the story to us from the Bible. Then we talked about what it meant.
We talked about how Jesus was shown in His glory by God to the disciples and that it was just like a beautiful butterfly. It comes from an egg, changing to a caterpillar and then from a chrysalis into such a wonderful insect.
We decided to role play all the stages of the life cycle of a butterfly to remind us.
Here is the reading for us to share together……28 About eight days after Jesus said these things, he took Peter, James, and John and went up on a mountain to pray. 29 While Jesus was praying, his face was changed, and his clothes became shining white. 30 Then two men were talking with Jesus. The men were Moses and Elijah.[a] 31 They appeared in heavenly glory, talking with Jesus about his death which would happen in Jerusalem. 32 Peter and the others were asleep. But they woke up and saw the glory of Jesus. They also saw the two men who were standing with him. 33 When Moses and Elijah were about to leave, Peter said, “Master, it is good that we are here. We will put three tents here—one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” (Peter did not know what he was saying.)
34 While Peter was saying these things, a cloud came down all around them. Peter, James, and John became afraid when the cloud covered them. 35 A voice came from the cloud. The voice said, “This is my Son. He is the One I have chosen. Obey him.”
36 When the voice finished speaking, only Jesus was there. Peter, James, and John said nothing. At that time they told no one about what they had seen.
