Transfiguration of the Lord – Proper Liturgy – Year C

From the Gospel according to Luke 9: 28b-36

At that time, Jesus took Peter, John and James with him and went up the mountain to pray. While he was praying, his face changed in appearance and his robe became white and dazzling. And behold, two men were conversing with him: they were Moses and Elijah, appeared in glory, and they were speaking of his exodus, which was about to take place in Jerusalem.

Peter and his companions were oppressed by sleep; but when they awoke, they saw his glory and the two men who stood with him. As they separated from him, Peter said to Jesus: «Master, it is good for us to be here. Let’s make three huts, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah ». He didn’t know what he was saying.

While he was speaking thus, a cloud came and covered them with its shadow. Upon entering the cloud, they were afraid. And a voice came out of the cloud, saying: This is my Son, the Chosen One; listen to him! ». As soon as the voice ceased, Jesus was left alone. They were silent and in those days they did not tell anyone what they had seen.

Word of the Lord.
Praise to You or Christ.

Comment by Pope Francis

“Jesus is the Son who became a Servant, sent into the world to carry out the plan of salvation through the Cross, for save us all. His full adherence to the Father’s will makes his humanity transparent to the glory of God, who is Love.

It is the fulfillment of the revelation; for this reason Moses and Elijah appear next to him transfigured, representing the Law and the Prophetsas if to signify that everything ends and begins in Jesus. The delivery for the disciples and for us is this: “Listen to him!”.

He is the Savior: follow him. Listening to Christ, in fact, involves assuming the logic of his paschal mystery, to set out with him to make one’s existence a gift of love for others, in docile obedience to the will of God, with an attitude of detachment from worldly things and of interior freedom.

In other words, it is necessary to be ready to “lose your life“(Cf. Mk 8:35), giving it so that all men may be saved and that we will meet in eternal happiness. The path of Jesus always leads us to happiness, do not forget that“.
