Dear St. Jane Frances de Chantal School Community,
Happy 2nd Sunday of Lent! Today’s Gospel talks about the Transfiguration, where Jesus brought some of his disciples up a mountain. During that time, Jesus changed in clothing, spoke to two prophets that appeared and God spoke aloud, “This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.” Take a moment to retreat with this short reflection video by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZKgS8Lx4d8&t=0s&index=25&list=PLpTzvCOJa7DCtgpPT22G8NClHeoKpWu5Q
