The Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord

During this morning's Mass for the Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord, Fr. Joe Schwab does a beautiful reflection during the Homily regarding the Gospel according to Matthew, Chapter 17, Verses 1-9. May we always bask in our Lord's eternal Light. I have included the Holy scripture below and a clip from Fr. Joe's Homily below.

Gospel: Matthew, 17:1-9

Jesus took Peter, James, and his brother, John,

and led them up a high mountain by themselves.

And he was transfigured before them;

his face shone like the sun

and his clothes became white as light.

And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them,

conversing with him.

Then Peter said to Jesus in reply,

"Lord, it is good that we are here.

If you wish, I will make three tents here,

one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah."

While he was still speaking, behold,

a bright cloud cast a shadow over them,

then from the cloud came a voice that said,

"This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased;

listen to him."

When the disciples heard this, they fell prostrate

and were very much afraid.

But Jesus came and touched them, saying,

"Rise, and do not be afraid."

And when the disciples raised their eyes,

they saw no one else but Jesus alone.

As they were coming down from the mountain,

Jesus charged them,

"Do not tell the vision to anyone

until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead."
