On the second Sunday of Lent, Father Bob lays out a vision of the possibility of the Lenten journey. Using the image of the Transfiguration as a symbol of the goal of our individual paths to friendship with Christ, Father Bob discusses how we can begin to move deeper into the meaning of the things we have -- our clothes, our technology, our food, our dreams, our hopes. He urges us to begin to learn how we can see these things as gifts that relate us to other people, which would then cultivate a deeper understanding of our true selves and the inner meaning of the mystery of our baptisms into the dying and rising of Jesus Christ.
Father Bob served as a priest for more than 50 years, first teaching philosophy, then directing an innovative hospital ministry at Stony Brook University for 22 years. In 1988, Father Bob published the book In the Image of God. In 2002, Father Bob retired to Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. At Cornell, Father Bob helped lead the Catholic Community and continued to preach the gospel.
