One of the new Luminous Mysteries is the Transfiguration of the Lord. There’s no question that this was a startling event, where God declared the sonship of Jesus for all to hear.
Jesus is the Christ.
It got me wondering about the larger concept of transfiguration, though.
Since we are all Children of God and Jesus’ Brothers and Sisters, we have the ability to be transfigured ourselves. Right?
In fact, hasn’t this already been affirmed at our Baptism and Confirmation?
So what is it I’m doing to become transfigured? To act as if this is indeed the reality?
Because I certainly shouldn’t ignore this powerful and indelible relationship. This gift.
