FEAST of the TRANSFIGURATION
of the LORD
As we peer into the glory that pours from every pore of the transfigured Christ, we cast off everything unworthy of our personal relationship with the Infinite, and we take on the luster of the Son of God. Jesus gazes back at us with a luminous look of love that makes us desire to live His transparent beauty – to be luminaries. Silently from Tabor’s splendor, the Savior begs: “Become what you behold!” (From Magnificat, Vol 15, No 6/August 2013)
"Peter, James and John witnessed the Transfiguration of Christ on
. The whole world will witness the glorious transfiguration of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. It will have the exact opposite effect of the bombing of Mount Tabor . At the transfiguration of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament, there will be an explosion of divine energy which will release the power of His love and renew the face of the earth. Then the world will see Real Power! All will be made well. All will belong to His Heart. All will be made one. Nagasaki
In the meantime, there are five graces we receive each time we visit Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. By His glorious wounds we are the ones who are transfigured and changed through His healing love. Restoration, sanctification, transformation, reparation and salvation are the graces being poured out graciously upon us with each holy hour we make.
Like Peter... this is why we should exclaim in His Divine Presence, 'Lord, how good it is for us to be here!'"
