the brilliance of Light on a mountain!

happy feast of the transfiguration!

i had been looking through some photos from four years ago. i was blessed to experience the holy land with our claretian biblical pastoral. there were so many wonderful memories and graces from that trip that i appreciate all the more now.

on august 8, 2016, i had the opportunity to preside at the chapel of transfiguration on mt tabor! it has to be one of the highlights of my life!

The Transfiguration of Jesus. After six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, 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.

i pray that the Lord continue to transform us so that we may know jesus’ brilliance in our lives and listen to his words of love, hope and faith. may we rise up in all circumstances in life and may his presence soothe and remove all our fears. may the Spirit keep our eyes fixed on jesus alone and savor his gaze each step on our journeys of life and faith
