Ducit illos in montem excelsum seorsum solos (Mk 9:2).

Led them up a high mountain apart by themselves.

Jesus invites us and takes us apart from the world. In such a way, he wants to make us his special friends and to teach us his mysteries. It cannot be done quickly or in a hurry but it takes time. For that reason, first he leads us out of the world of noise and earthen matters. Far from our daily routine and circumstances, he shows us the splendor of nature and his miracles. There in his divine presence we also can be transformed. First of all our thinking and attitude toward life. And it is always good for us to let him change our mind. However, it is impossible here on the earth to abide in such an exultation all the time. We can only use these moments of silence and inner peace to open our heart for his will. Afterwards we are invited to follow his instructions to live a happy and peaceful life. Furthermore, we can keep this experience and be witnesses for others.
