(Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord)
As Peter, James and John sat atop that mountain and watched Jesus along with Elijah and Moses conversing, a cloud came, casting a shadow over them;
from the cloud came a voice, “This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.” Mk_9:2-10
The vision, the voice, the command, the Glory: There was no doubt that this was truly occurring and not a dream. Jesus revealed His true Divine nature to the Apostles, and God, the Father validated what they had seen and gradually believed by Word – that Jesus IS the Son of God, the Messiah, the Savior of the world. The Apostles hadn’t a clue as to what they had witnessed. And yet, it would all slowly make sense in the weeks and years to come.
Ever witnessed a miraculous event in your lives, beloved? Maybe we didn’t recognize it at the time, but as time goes on, all of a sudden it will come back and we will truly see it for what it was – the intervention of God in our lives. He truly does Live. And if we look we’ll see His miracles all around us every day. Look, see, listen and LOVE!
With a special Happy Birthday prayer and blessing to the Love of my life, Mary Ann! May our God bless you richly now and always – In Jesus’ Name!
