This week is the Transfiguration of Jesus. Jesus is showing His disciples what it will be like when He rises from the dead.
Gospel Reflection for Kids
In this week’s gospel Jesus is praying on a mountain with Peter, James, and John. While Jesus was praying, a miracle happened.
Suddenly Jesus’ face was shining like the sun, and His disciples could see all His heavenly glory! They saw Moses and Elijah talking with Jesus too!
Jesus was showing them what it would be like when He rose from the dead. Seeing this gave His disciples strength during the hard times when they had to see Jesus suffer and die.
That’s because they knew that Jesus would come back in glory. And we will too! One day, when we’re in heaven with Jesus.
When you have hard times during Lent, remember how great things will be when Easter comes and we celebrate Jesus rising from the dead.
