In this homily, Fr. Healy reminds us that our perspective is important in understanding events. In this week’s Gospel, Jesus takes the apostles up the mountain to see a glimpse of the Glory of God. Fr. Healy points out that rather than stay on that mountain, Jesus leads Peter, James, and John back down the mountain to be with and to care for those living below.
