Support the Archdiocese
for Military Services
Next week’s special collection will benefit
the Archdiocese for the Military Services which was created by Pope Saint
John Paul II to provide for the Catholic
Church's full range of pastoral ministries and spiritual
services to those in the United States Armed Forces.
This includes more than 220 installations in 29 countries, patients in 153 V.A. Medical Centers, and federal
employees serving outside the boundaries of the USA
in 134 countries. Numerically, the AMS is responsible
for more than 1.8 million men, women, and children.
Your generosity is greatly appreciated!
The Transfiguration of our Lord
August 6, 2014
T
he Transfiguration of Jesus
Christ is the culminating
point of His public life, just as His
Baptism is its starting point, and
His Ascension its end. This glorious
event has been related in detail by
Matthew (17:1-6), Mark (9:1-8), and
Luke (9:28-36), while Peter (2 Peter
1:16-18) and John (1:14), two of the
privileged witnesses, make allusion to it.
About a week after His sojourn
in Cæsarea Philippi, Jesus took with him Peter, James
and John and led them to a high mountain, apart from
the other disciples, where He was transfigured before
their eyes.
This dazzling brightness which emanated from His
Body was produced by an interior radiance of His Divinity. False Judaism had, by then, rejected the Messiah, and now true Judaism, represented by Moses and
Elijah, the Law and the Prophets, recognized and
adored Him.
For the second time since His Baptism in the Jordan, God the Father proclaimed Jesus His onlybegotten and well-loved Son. By this glorious manifestation the Divine Master, who had just foretold His
Passion to the Apostles (Matthew 16:21), and who spoke
with Moses and Elijah of the trials which awaited Him
at Jerusalem, strengthened the faith of his three
friends and prepared them for the terrible struggle of
which they were to be His witnesses, by giving them a
foretaste of the glory and heavenly delight which
awaits each of us through our patient and faithful endurance of the tests and trials of life.
