Transfigured and veiled...

of the LORD

"From the cloud came a voice which said,
'This is My beloved Son. Listen to Him.' " — Mark 9:7 
 Matthew 17:1-8; Mark 9:2-9; Luke 9:28-36

"At His Transfiguration Christ showed His disciples the splendor
of His beauty, to which He will shape and color those who are His:
He will reform our lowness configured to the body of His glory’ 
(Phil 3:21) (St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologiae).

“As He then lived upon earth,
so now He lives in our midst,
but transfigured and veiled
to the bodily eyes 
[in the Blessed Sacrament].

Fr. Frederick Wm Faber
