The Transfiguration of the Lord (f)

Daniel 7:9-10, 13-14; Psalm 97; 2 Peter 1:16-19; Luke 9:28-36

Radiate God’s love today

We sometimes say that a pregnant woman looks radiant. Something hidden fills her with love and life. At the Transfiguration, the Kingdom of God is unmasked in Christ and the hidden glory of God shines through. It happens on a mountain, within a cloud, and the disciples are afraid. Moses and Elijah, representing the Law and the Prophets, appear; and a voice from heaven echoes Christ’s baptism: “This is my Son, the Chosen One. Listen to Him”. The Old and New Testaments coalesce in this rare Trinitarian moment that the disciples would not comprehend until they received the Holy Spirit. How will you radiate God’s love today?
