The Feast of the Transfiguration Featured

  • Tuesday, 04 November 2014 00:00

The Feast of the Transfiguration celebrates the day when our Lord Jesus Christ took Peter, John, and James, and went up onto a mountain to pray. "And He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light." Matthew 17:2

St. Cyril of Alexandria explains, saying, "We say there is a Transfiguration, note that the human body changes to another body, but a glorious light enveloped it, the form of the body stays the same, but its aspect is penetrated by a radiant light."

"And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him." (Matthew 17:3)

St. Cyril of Alexandria also explains this: "Moses and Elijah stood beside Him, and talked with him, so as to declare that the Law and the prophets serve our Lord Jesus Christ, and prove evidently that He is the Lord of the Law and the prophets, and together, they spoke of Him."

May the blessings of this feast be with us all.
