Appearance on the mountain in Galilee

Duccio-Di-Buoninsegna

Moses, Jeremiah, even St. Joseph initially show apprehension about speaking or acting on behalf of God; indeed it is both a great challenge and honour to do so. And yet, Jesus asks us to speak on His behalf when He commanded us to preach the Gospel to all nations. Notice in this painting how our Lord’s feet are transparent on the rock, but His body is solid. Conversely, the Apostles feet are solid on the grounding signifying, in a sense, that the Apostles are the feet of our Lord on earth. We too, share in this mission, to be His hands and feet on earth. Prayerfully consider how we are called to be Our Lord’s hands and feet.
