St. Peter, the Transfiguration, and Leadership

On the second Sunday of Lent, the Gospel reading for the Mass (Luke 9:28-36) described how Jesus took three of His disciples – Peter, John, and James – up on a mountain to pray.  While Jesus was praying, His disciples fell asleep.  When they woke up, Peter and his companions saw Jesus, Moses, and Elijah standing together.  Their bodies were radiant from being in a glorified state.
