A Lenten Reflection

God is the “space between” calling us constantly into relationship, into a deeper awareness of the Incarnation. Martin Buber reflected that “When two people relate to each other authentically and humanly, God is the electricity that surges between them.” Right relationships awaken our lives to the presence of God among us. We are invited to tune our hearts to this energy which can transform everyone.

CathedralBaldacchinoWebOn Transfiguration

“I doubt …

that we could produce a more spectacular example of the principle of transfiguration than the cross itself….

It was a ghastly instrument of death, of an excruciatingly awful death reserved for the most notorious malefactors.

It was an object of dread and shame.

This instrument of a horrendous death has been spectacularly transfigured. Once a means of death, it is now perceived by Christians to be the source of life eternal.”

Desmond Tutu, “God Has a Dream”
