The event of the Transfiguration of the Lord is a poignant counterpoint to the Passion. He also anticipates the fruits of the suffering and death of Jesus – His Resurrection and Glorification. The witnesses of these mysteries are meant to inspire us on to victory.

Peter, James, and John are our spiritual ancestors. They were far from perfect, yet God chose them. Likewise, He chose us to be His witnesses.

Gracious God, I thank you for the gift of my vocation. May your Spirit inspire me to be a faithful witness to the beauty of Your Love?
