The Transfiguration

“His face shone like the sun.”

Matthew 17:1-9

Today we celebrate the Feast of the Transfiguration of Jesus; this must have been a transformative moment for the disciples. Today we are invited to go up the mountain and take our place with the other disciples. Jesus took with him his closes disciples. Today he takes us up the mountain to experience his divinity.

Each day when we pray, we can gain a deeper understanding of who Jesus is. Today we hear God the Father say of Jesus, “This is my beloved Son with whom I am well pleased. Listen to him.” How do we respond when we hear God say these words to us. At times we might be tempted to forget about the divinity of Jesus. However, when we sincerely ascend the mountain with Jesus and open our hearts to him, we can experience transformation and change. And we can also God say of us “This is my beloved daughter/ son; listen to her/him.”
