Daniel 7:9-10,13-14; Ps 97 The Lord is king, the most high over all the earth; 2 Peter 1:16-19; Mark 9:2-10
It has been said that the destiny of every Christian is written between two mountains: from Calvary to the mountain of the Transfiguration.
In fact , it is the reality of Calvary that is the foundation of the unfolding events of Tabor. Jesus charges the disciples not to relate what they had seen except when the son of man rises from the dead. Calvary first then Tabor. Passion and death and resurrection then transfiguration.
The Transfiguration is a celebration of the presence of Christ which takes charge of everything in us and transfigures even that which disturbs us about ourselves.
What disturbs us about ourselves? What do we try to hide and keep buried? What do we not let exposed to the light?
God penetrates those hardened, incredulous, even disquieting regions within us, about which we really do not know what to do. God penetrates them with the life of the Spirit and acts upon those regions and gives them his own face.
