July 29 – MT. TABOR & CANA
On Mt. Tabor, the Lord Jesus was transfigured before Peter, James and John on Mt. Tabor. The Father said “This is my Son, my Chosen one, listen to him” (Luke 9:36). ) Mass today is at the Church of the Transfiguration. Lunch will be at the Franciscan Casa Nova on Mt. Tabor overlooking the valley of Sharon. In Cana, the site of the First Miracle, the changing of water into wine, the servants obeyed Mary’s request, “Do whatever He tells you.” (John 2:5) Couples in the group that have received the Sacrament of Matrimony will renew their wedding vows in Cana. Later, they will celebrate with wine from Cana!
Prayer: “Lord slow us down. Sometimes we get so busy that many distractions challenge our values and priorities. Take us apart with your Son so that we may listen to Him and not become confused or empty. Speak, Lord, we desire to listen to your voice! Mary, pray for us to “Do whatever He tells us.”
