PODCAST | The Transfiguration of the Lord
On August 6th, the Church celebrates the Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord. On today’s podcast, we listen and reflect on the “background” and meaning of the Transfiguration, and how contemplating the scene of the Transfiguration continues to transform us today:
- The Transfiguration of Jesus encourages us in our commitment to discipleship.
- When we commit to protracted prayer—deep, silent, concentrated—we can see God through the eyes of our soul and heart.
- The Transfiguration helped the apostles to trust in the Cross—the raw materials that make up our crosses—and to believe that there is no such thing as failure when we follow Christ.
- Contemplating this scene and Jesus’ words (Mk 9:2-10), we begin to see Him, to take on His capacity for self-giving love, and we become more empowered to give of ourselves with the heart of Jesus.
