When we did the bible study on the journeys of St. Peter, they showed us the area where it is thought the Transfiguration took place. It wasn't at all what I had in my mind. I pictured a grassy hillside where they had a nice easy walk to the spot Jesus stopped. Kind of a picnic area on a hill. In fact, it was a quite hostile environment; rocky, steep, cold, icy. As I considered today's gospel and the much more mountainous picture in my mind, I thought back to some of my mountain experiences.
