“Suddenly, there were two men talking with him, Moses and Elijah” (Luke 9:30).
Reflection: Jesus was transfigured; the glory of his divinity shone through his humanity, which reminds us that humanity always expresses the image of God. Here, Moses and Elijah converse with Jesus about his upcoming death, which will itself conquer death. The Transfiguration was meant to remind the apostles that death would not have the last word.
Prayer: Jesus, may your Transfiguration strengthen all of us in the face of the power of death to realize that you have brought about a new kingdom of life. Amen.
