Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord

Today we celebrate the feast of the Transfiguration of Christ, celebrates the revelation of Christ’s divine glory on Mount Tabor in Galilee (Matthew 17:1-6;Mark 9:1-8; Luke 9:28-36). After revealing to His disciples that He would be put to death in Jerusalem (Matthew 16:21), Christ, along with Ss. Peter, James, and John, went up the mountain. There, Saint Matthew writes, “he was transfigured before them. And his face did shine as the sun: and his garments became white as snow.”
