We are continuing our homily series: “Travel the World in 7 mins”. Last week where did we go? We went to Mexico, Nuevo Laredo. This week where are we going? We are going to Canada, to a little town called Mabou in Nova Scotia.
Mabou is a quaint little town in a harbour, it is on the Island of Cape Breton. It is where I grew up. There are beautiful beaches, rugged cliffs, and great hiking along the coasts. Every summer my family goes home to Mabou and we enjoy our vacation days immersed in nature. Two summers ago, my sisters and I took off in the evening to the shores and pitched a tent by the ocean. Camping by the ocean is one of the most beautiful human experiences. You go to sleep under the starry sky and to the sound of the waves, you breathe in the salty fresh air, wake up to the waves crashing on the shore, jump in for a morning swim and prepare breakfast over the fire. We just love being there, we just love being together, chatting, singing, and living freely.
I think that this was the experience of Peter and the disciples. Today we read about the Transfiguration. The disciples climbed the mountain with Jesus and they loved being with Jesus so much that they wanted to pitch a tent and just hang out with him. The whole world stopped, the hustle and bustle of the city streets, the noise, the rush, the to do’s, the messages, the emails (maybe they didn’t have messages and emails, but they too were busy with their things). There with Jesus everything was on halt and they were just happy to be with him.
This lent, let us ask for this type of experience of Jesus, of God! Let us ask that we may experience a love so great that we simply want to rest in it, to be there. May we experience God’s love for who we are more than for what we do! May we also long to pitch a tent and be with Jesus, who wants to be with us!
If you need anything, never hesitate to ask me.
God bless you and your loved ones, Fr. Kramer Cameron, LC
