The Transfiguration of Our Lord Jesus Christ

“Jesus took with him Peter and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray. And while he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became dazzling white.” — Luke 9:28–29

With shining face and bright array / Christ deigns to manifest today — (from a 15th century hymn)

What is illuminated by the Glory of Christ? What is this Light that came into the world meant to show? What was being revealed?

This Sunday is the Feast of the Transfiguration so it is fitting to ask such questions. Is the Light itself the object of one’s sight—or that which is illumined by the Light? What are we meant to see in the glory of Christ?

I look forward to asking and searching these questions together on Sunday! See you then!
