JUST A THOUGHT FROM JOHN GLYNN

NINETEENTH SUNDAY OF THE YEAR OF MATTHEW
13th August 2017

At the Transfiguration of Jesus which we celebrated last Sunday, the disciples heard the Father declare, not only: “This is my beloved Son, in whom I delight”, but added: “Listen to him.” Our mountain-top moments teach us not simply the wonder of the divine Presence, basking in the radiance of God’s love, but making us more open and sensitive to the voice of God in our everyday lives when we return to the foot of the mountain.

Elijah in the first reading today, fleeing the wrath of Queen Jezebel, comes to Mount Sinai trembling with fear. Alone and terrified, he needs an answer to the only question he can hear pounding in his heart: “What are you doing here, Elijah?” What am I fleeing from? Where am I going? What do my own hopes and fears, dreams and darknesses tell of you, Lord? The only authentic place we can do God’s will is in the present moment, the here and now. And our answer to “what are you doing here?” must be utterly honest. Political correctness has no place in genuine prayer.

When we stand on the mountain before God, we face our personal storms, earthquakes, and fires, which can consume all our attention, keeping us from moving on to the listening silence of the Word. Listen to him, not yourself. When the Lord spoke to Elijah in the still small voice, he asked the same question: “What are you doing here?” And Elijah gave the same answer. The situation had not changed. But Elijah now saw the way forward in hope, empowered to let the Lord do his work through his powerless availability. “O you of little faith, why do you doubt?” asks Jesus. Why indeed?

May the Lord bless you.

John
