As the war in Ukraine rages on and the death toll rises, the Russian invasion reveals how evil can disfigure the face of the earth. This Sunday’s gospel tells the story of the transfiguration of Jesus, showing his disciples the glory that awaits them even as Jesus will endure the suffering and death of the cross. The readings this Sunday encourage us to be “agents of transfiguration” as we seek to work with God so that injustice is transfigured into justice and peace. Through the grace of God, our challenge is to transfigure the face of the earth that is so often disfigured by evil, hatred, war, and oppression.
