Transfiguration Sunday 2017

transfiguration.jpgO God,

who before the passion of your only begotten Son

revealed his glory upon the holy mountain:

Grant to us that we, beholding by faith the light of his countenance,

may be strengthened to bear our cross,

and be changed into his likeness from glory to glory;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

–Book of Common Prayer

Scripture References:  Exodus 24:12-18; 2 Peter 1:16-20; Matthew 17:1-9

Reflection: Transfiguration Sunday is the perfect segue way into the Lent season–a season of self-examination, repentance, and renewal–“And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit” (2 Corinthians 3:18 NIV).
