EnLIGHTened by the Feast of the Transfiguration

The Transfiguration is a way of life that is available to all Catholics! Like all feasts about Jesus, it tells us something about him and something about us. Do you want to know what God is revealing to you about yourself through the light of the Transfiguration? Listen as Richaél Lucero sheds light on this burning question.

Declarations to pray over yourself

In the name of Jesus, I declare and decree:

  • Jesus is the light of the world and I follow him.
  • I will follow Jesus, and I will not walk in darkness.
  • I seek and accept Christ’s nearness, therefore, the Transfiguration is a way of life available to me.
  • Through theosis I grow brighter and brighter into God’s image.

Quotes referenced

The Transfiguration is not simply an event out of the two-thousand-year old past, or a future yet to come. It is rather a reality of the present, a way of life available to those who seek and accept Christ’s nearness.

Archbishop Joseph Raya

2009 Angelus Address on the Feast of the Transfiguration

Today, the liturgy invites us to focus our gaze on this mystery of light.

The Transfiguration invites us to open the eyes of our hearts to the mystery of God’s light

Light is a sign that reveals something of God: it is, as it were, a reflection of his glory.

…God’s light …illumines definitively human life and the course of history.

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

1999 Homily on the Feast of the Transfiguration

We, pilgrims on earth, are granted to rejoice in the company of the transfigured Lord when we immerse ourselves in the things of above through prayer and the celebration of the divine mysteries. But, like the disciples, we too must descend from Tabor into daily life where human events challenge our faith. On the mountain we saw; on the paths of life we are asked tirelessly to proclaim the Gospel which illuminates the steps of believers.

St. Pope John Paul II
