Dear Friend in the Lord,
Transfiguration: In today’s Gospel, Jesus revealed His Divinity as Son of God through the transfiguration of His Being. The apostles Peter, James and John were specially chosen for this revelation. Ponder on, “How did God specially chose to touch your heart in certain situations of your life? Thank the Lord for them.”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus took with him Peter and James and John and led them up a high mountain on their own by themselves. There in their presence he was transfigured: his clothes became dazzlingly white, whiter than any earthly bleacher could make them. Elijah appeared to them with Moses; and they were talking to Jesus.
Then Peter spoke to Jesus, ‘Rabbi,’ he said, ‘it is wonderful for us to be here; so let us make three tents, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.’ He did not know what to say; they were so frightened. And a cloud came, covering them in shadow; and there came a voice from the cloud, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved. Listen to him.’
Then suddenly, when they looked round, they saw no one with them any more but only Jesus. As they were coming down from the mountain he warned them to tell no one what they had seen, until after the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
