Feast of the Transfiguration
Gospel: Mark 9:2-10
In the midst of a chaotic world, one just needs to be more sensitive and see how God is present and working in the world today.
The Gospel today is about the transfiguration of Jesus that reveals his radiant glory. The apostles are witnesses to this, but Jesus silenced them until all these, his death and resurrection, had to take place.
The gospel also revealed the voice of God who said, "This is my beloved Son, listen to Him." The event took place in Mt. Tabor, symbolically, a meeting place between God and man.
The gospel has a powerful message for the people of today, most especially to those who are totally absorbed with the worldliness around them.
This is a time to evaluate if in the midst of the material world, we still images of the divine actively working in the world today.
There are a lot of disvalues everywhere. It’s as if there is a choice between materialism and spirituality and that they are equally at par with each other. It’s also time to be more visible is manifesting one’s spirituality and letting others know God’s true place in people’s hearts.
In a family, every child’s faith would come alive only through the visible action of the parents.
The transfiguration hints us to see the divine in ordinary things and how we can be instruments in bringing it out in our daily lives.
