In light of Matthew's gospel description of the transfiguration of Jesus, Fr. Riccardo tells the congregation of his experience during the past week attending the funeral of a young child. Fr. John reminds us that what we hear in church is the true reality, and has a profound impact on what happens in our lives. He reminds us that suffering and death don't have the last word. Fr. John tells us, "After the cross, not just His cross but our cross, comes the crown. And only after the cross."
