August 6 – Transfiguration of Jesus

Transfiguration of Jesus

listenDear Father in Heaven, through the glorious transfiguration of Your Son, You verified the significance of Moses and Elijah as fathers of the Faith.  You confirmed our belief in Jesus as the Messiah, saying, “This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased; listen to Him.”   Lord Jesus, I lift up to You all those who listen to the false gods of the New Age movement, alternative religions, and materialism.  Let their ears hear You calling.  Teach me how to reveal Your saving love to them, and increase my holiness so that I may be transfigured by Your presence within me.  Moses and Elijah, pray for us.  Amen.

Feast Day August 6

quoteO God, Who in the glorious Transfiguration of Your Only-begotten Son, did confirm the mysteries of the Faith by the testimony of the fathers: and Who, in the voice which came from the shining cloud, did wondrously foreshow our perfect adoption as sons: deign in Your mercy to make us co-heirs with this King of Glory, and grant that we may be made partakers of that same glory.”
