The Transfiguration of Christ

The Transfiguration of Christ is one of those feasts I love more and more — and not only because it has a superb liturgy which conveys both the essence of the mystery and its significance for us. I think the Transfiguration opens a window onto heaven, so to say, and allows us a glimpse of what we shall be when we have become like Him at last. It is a feast of hope, of light and peace in a dark and deeply troubled world. Let us give thanks and rejoice.
