Focus on the Sunday Gospel to Celebrate the 2nd Sunday in Lent.
Use this unit study to help teach children that transfigure means to change. The Lenten season reminds us that real change begins with repentance and a change of heart. This lesson is based on the Transfiguration in the Gospel of St. Matthew 17:1-9.
The Transfiguration of the Lord is the moment of disclosure of Christ’s Divine glory. He uses this event to build the faith of His followers and prepare them to witness His death. During Lent, we too are invited to strengthen our relationship with God. We are called to repent and to have an inward change of heart. This lesson helps children to understand that Jesus is truly the Son of God and that the Transfiguration can inspire us to become closer to God during Lent.
