With you.

Think about the people you really know.

I’m mean really know.  To the point that when something happens, you don’t just know how they’ll react.  You know what they think about it.  And how it feels to them.   

Because you get them.

For most of us, there are only a few people we really get.  Because it takes time - and vulnerability - for them to show us who they really are.

But when it happens, it’s because they trust you.  And they want to have that kind of relationship, that kind of closeness.  With you. 

Which is why Sunday’s Gospel (the Transfiguration) has that odd feeling of stumbling in on someone else’s private moment.

Because it is.  It’s that moment of vulnerability for Jesus.  Where the three people closest to Jesus get to see who Jesus really is.    

So why are you looking at someone else’s private moment?  Because it’s not just their moment, it’s yours too.   

Jesus wants to have that kind of relationship, that kind of closeness.  With you.
