Mass readings in Scots: Second Sunday of Lent (Year C)

Gospel reading
Luke 9: 28-36

Jesus took wi’ him Peter and John and James, and gaed to pray, up intil a mountain. And whiles he was prayin, the look o’ his face was changed, and his cleedin becam white and shinin. And lo! twa men spak wi’ him; wha war Moses and Elijah. Wha schawed theirsels in glorie, and spak o’ his depairtin, whilk he soud accomplish at Jerusalem. But Peter and the lave wi’ him war unco heavy wi’ sleep: and whan they war wauken’d up, they saw his glorie, and the twa men staunin wi’ him. And as they war aboot to pass awa, Peter said to Jesus, “Maister! it is graun for us to be here. And lat us mak thrie bothies, ane for thee, and ane for Moses, and ane for Elijah” -no kennin richt what he was sayin. And whiles he was yet speakin thir words, a clud cam and owershadit them, and they were strucken fu’ o’ fear, as the men enter’t intil the clud. And a voice cam oot o’ the clud. "This is my Son, the Chosen Ane! Hear ye him!" And whan the voice had been heard, Jesus was thar his lane. And they keepit it to their sels; and tell’t nae man i’ thae days whatna things they had seen.
