Feast of the Transfiguration

One lesson to apply to your life from this mystery of light is to say to yourself, even in the most trying of moments, "it is good that we are here," all the while asking yourself why God has put you here, right now.

  1. Of all the Feasts of the Church which I love, this is my favorite. I meditate on how beatific an experience Peter, James, and John had on that day, and how forlorn they must have been to leave that beatific vision. "Lord, it is good for us to be here." I love the Transfiguration not because it "relates" to our lives, but because it lifts up beyond our lives, embodies the virtue of Hope, and gives a promise and foretaste of the ecstacy of Heaven, when we will never have to come down from Tabor to face Calvary.

    Also, I'm always reminded on this feast of back in May of '85, when I had the privilege of visiting Mt. Tabor and attending Mass there.
