Jesus is perspective-bending. People ‘don’t know what they don’t know”; since no other perspective but our own makes sense to us, we have difficulty even acknowledging that another way of seeing exists.

Our transfiguration

On the Feast of the Transfiguration, we are reminded to listen to Him. The daily Ignatian Examen prayer gives us an opportunity to learn His voice and recognize it in the small stuff of our life.

Upon His shoulders dominion rests

This week, we are celebrating the Ascension of Jesus into Heaven. As a babe kings honored Him. As a young man all abused Him. And now He will take those wounds into Heaven with Him, dignifying our humanity. Christ the King takes His proper seat at the right hand of God the Father and, with a watchful eye, oversees His dominion.
