TRANSFIGURATION – THE LIGHT OF GOD

Today we celebrate the Feast of the Transfiguration when Christ appeared in radiant glory to three of His disciples, Peter, James and John, on Mount Tabor.  While most of us may never have a transfiguration experience, many will have had mini-Tabor moments during personal encounters in prayer; for others it may be during the Consecration at Mass or while sitting in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament during times of Eucharistic Adoration.

A moment will come in all our lives when we will be transfigured into what Christ was on Mount Tabor, “as dazzling as the sun and radiant as light” (Mt 17:2).  Christ’s transfiguration is a powerful demonstration of the glory of which our human bodies are destined and longed for.

Therefore it is not surprising that today is a feast of encouragement and hope.  When we pray as often as we can, we too can have our own moments of transfiguration; moments of grace to help us become more loving and open to God.  It also helps us to build up reserves of special experiences and intimate moments with the Lord, to carry us through troubled or painful times ahead.

Take a quiet moment or two today, to come into the Lord’s presence and allow Him to touch you with His words, “Do not be afraid” (Mt 17:7).

SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPEL

Matthew 17:1-9

….  On the mountain the disciples saw Jesus in a new way.  His appearance changed.  Sometimes in friendship there are moments of sharing in which we get to know a friend in a new and deeper way.  Have you had that experience in human friendship or in your relationship with Jesus and God.  Recall when that happened and what it was like for you.

The clear vision of Jesus with Moses and Elijah was followed by the frightening experience of being in a cloud and it was in the midst of the cloud that disciples were instructed “This is my Son, my Chosen, listen to Him’.  Have you had the experience of learning the truth about life and about your relationship with God from moments of confusion as well as from times of special joy? ....

- John Byrne osa Intercom July/August 2023


THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

We may never experience anything as powerful as the Transfiguration.  But every day in countless and seemingly small ways God does break into our world and our daily lives.  Every time we experience a moment of peace, joy, reconciliation or forgiveness, God is with us.  Every time that we reach out to help another person is a moment of transfiguration both for ourselves and for those we help.  Each time somebody shows care and concern for us is a moment when God is reaches out to us.  This week, let us open our hearts so that we may hear Jesus speaking to us.  May we slow down and look for moments of small but important times of transfiguration in our own ordinary daily lives.

- Michael Moore OMI
