FEAST OF TRANSFIGURATION
Feast of Transfiguration is observed on August 6. This foretells
the glory of the Lord as God, and His Ascension into heaven. It
anticipates the glory of heaven, where we shall see God face to
face. Through grace, we already share in the divine promise of
eternal life. As we celebrate the Feast of the Transfiguration
we are reminded on Christ who was beginning to teach his disciples
that He must die and rise again. Jesus revealed Himself in shining
splendor to Peter, James and John. Moses and Elijah were present
and are taken to signify that the Law and the Prophets testify
Jesus is the promised Messiah. During this glorious event, God
the Father also proclaimed Jesus as such by saying, “This
is my Beloved Son. Listen to him."
The purpose of the Transfiguration was to encourage and strengthen
the Apostles who were depressed by their Master's prediction of
His own Passion and Death. The Apostles were made to understand
that His redeeming work has two phases: The Cross, and glory—that
we shall be glorified with Him only if we first suffer with Him.
Hence, the Feast of Transfiguration has a profound and sublime
lesson for all times, and for Christians of all sorts and conditions.
In this earthly life we must not expect every hour to offer us
joy, pleasures and glory, even if we seek these with an honest
and legitimate purpose.

God our Father, in the transfigured glory of Christ your Son,
you strengthen our faith by confirming the witness of your prophets,
and show us the splendor of your beloved sons and daughters.
As we listen to the voice of your Son, help us to become heirs
to eternal life with him who lives and reigns with you and the
Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
on the Feast of Transfiguration
“About eight days after he said this, he took
Peter, John, and James and went up the mountain to pray. While
he was praying his face changed in appearance and his clothing
became dazzling white”
Quote on the Feast of Transfiguration
is beauty, human and divine beauty, the beauty of reality, of
truth, of life. The figure of Christ presents, over and above
the charm of his merciful gentleness, an aspect which is grave
and strong, formidable, if you like, when dealing with cowardice,
hypocrisy, injustice and cruelty, but never lacking a sovereign
aura of love".
- Pope John Paul II
