As the three Apostles awoke, Peter said, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us make three shelters, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah”
As Peter was saying this, “A cloud overshadowed them and they were afraid…” (Luke 9:33-34)
Jesus was never alone while on earth; neither are we.
The transfiguration gave Peter, James and John a glimpse of the splendours of heaven and the coming together of the Old Testament Law (Moses) and the Prophets (Elijah) with Jesus.
Lord Jesus, let your light shine upon me and your Holy Spirit overshadow me today. Amen.
Prayer: Jesus (Hildegard of Bingen)
Jesus Christ, the love that gives love,
You are higher than the highest star;
You are deeper than the deepest sea;
You cherish us as your own family;
You embrace us as your own spouse;
You rule over us as your own subjects;
You welcome us as your dearest friend.
Let all the world worship you.
