I THOUGHT YOU SHOULD KNOW | Transfiguration shows God’s love for Jesus, His people

The readings for the Feast of the Transfiguration tell us about the future God has in store for people who follow Jesus. Like Jesus, we're ultimately called to live in glory for all eternity.

In the first reading, Daniel has a vision of heaven. The Ancient One, whom we call God the Father, is seated on the throne. "His clothing was bright as snow, and the hair on His head as white as wool; His throne was flames of fire, with wheels of burning fire. A surging stream of fire flowed out from where He sat."

Archbishop Robert J. Carlson

We celebrate three significant feasts this week, the 18th Week in Ordinary Time, from which we can draw inspiration and guidance.
