Who can comprehend just what Jesus looked like on Mount Tabor when he revealed his glory to his inner circle of Apostles? The Feast of the Transfiguration reminds us to both marvel at what we can’t grasp while simultaneously awaiting with confidence that this is a hint of what awaits us with Christ in eternity. What will Heaven be like? What will the beatific vision be like?
A visitor to Cor Jesu once remarked on driving onto the hilltop that it was “like a heaven before Heaven”. We get glimpses of that daily with the natural wonder around us and its not restricted to our monastic grounds. The awe found in creation points to the Creator and anyone, anywhere, can open their mind’s eye to recognize it and revel in it.
A Blessed Feast of the Transfiguration to all!
