Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord
Reflection: This Sunday we celebrate the Feast of the Transfiguration. This celebration highlights for us the Lord’s glory as the Son of God and our Savior. The Transfiguration, for the disciples, is an invitation to faith. The days that followed this event in Mt. Tabor was devastating, the passion, crucifixion, and death of Jesus, for the disciples. With that, the Lord showed them a glimpse to what lies beyond, He showed them the glory that is to come. They might have not understood it well, but still the message is clear, death is not the end of everything. God has the power to overthrow the consequence of sin, because love conquers all.
On the other hand, this feast also invites us to follow Jesus, to transfigure or to configure ourselves to Him. The event that happened on the mountain changed Peter, James, and John forever. May this feast also be for us a source of transformation and renewal in a world that shuns anything that has to do with God and His will.
