Suggested Reflection Questions

  • The first reading describes God as sitting on a flaming throne wearing all white. Everyone thinks about God in different ways. What does God look like to you? What image comes to mind when you think of God?
  • The second reading talks about witnessing God’s work and hearing God’s voice. When was a time you saw God at work in the world?
  • In the Gospel, Jesus is transfigured in front of his disciples. When was a time you felt transformed or changed by God? Who did you tell about your experience?
