Transfiguration

The fourth Luminous mystery is The Transfiguration, it can be found in all of the synoptic Gospels (Matthew 17:1–8, Mark 9:2–8, Luke 9:28–36), and it also is mentioned in Peter’s  second letter(2 Peter 1:16–18). This is the time when Jesus, Peter, and the Sons of Thunder (James and John) go up a mountain many scholars point to Mount Tabor others think that the location is Mount Hermon. Well, on the top of whichever mountain it was Jesus began to shine, and then Moses and Elijah appeared  and spoke with Jesus. At the time Peter said “Let’s put up some tents” to keep this experience going forever, but before they get anything done the voice of God was hear saying “This is my (beloved) Son, with whom I am well pleased,  listen to him.” The fruit of the mystery is the desire for holiness. This is a great message that we need to take with us as we go into the week and prepare ourselves for the upcoming season of Lent. We hear God saying Listen to Jesus for so many this can only happen in brief “mountain-top experiences” but we need to remember to listen to Jesus while we are in the valley since God is with us through thick and thing see that Footprint in the sand poem. We need to be more open to seeing the Lord in our lives even when we are in the valley and plains,
