Today we commemorate the Transfiguration as recorded in Matthew, Mark, and Luke, where Jesus was revealed in dazzling light as the Son of God to the disciples. Moses and Elijah appeared alongside Him, showing that the Old Testament Law and Prophets point to Christ.
Prayer of the Day
Almighty God, the resplendent light of your truth shines from the mountaintop into our hearts. Transfigure us by your beloved Son, and illumine the world with your image, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
