Transfiguration of Jesus

– After six days, Jesus took Peter, James, and John, his brother, and raised them to a high mountain alone, and was transfigured before them: and His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became white like light. And so, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him. At this Peter said to Jesus: Lord! it’s good for us to be here; if you want, we will make three tabernacles here: one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah. While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and behold, a voice from the cloud saying: This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; listen to him. Matthew 17.1: 5Мф.21.42

We hear an interesting commentary on what happened from Theophan the Recluse: “In the Transfiguration, a voice from heaven did not say anything else but” listen to Him “(Matthew 17: 5). Why so? Because here the fruit of obedience was presented before our eyes. Shutters He spoke as if: do you want to achieve this? Listen, then, that He will inspire and command you. And if you follow His path, then you will undoubtedly enter the realm of light, which will not embrace you from outside, but from within, and will always keep you in such a state that all your bones will say: it is good for us to be so. You will be filled with the light of joy, the light of well-being, the light of knowledge; all sorrows go by, the disorder of passions will disappear, lies and delusions will dissipate ”

How we miss all this now. Let us pray to our Lord that He would send down the Holy Spirit to our hearts too so that the Divine light would shine in our souls and Divine grace would dwell in us and never leave.
