The Transfiguration of the Lord

Thursday 6 August, 2014 is the Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord. I've included three links for reading and/or prayer on this important feast that may not figure as high up there as Easter and Christmas for most of us, but is pretty important in itself. The icon here is linked from the Holy Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Monastery, and it is wonderful to see that they celebrated the feast at the same time as Rome does.

First, Jennifer Gregory Miller blogs briefly about the feast itself, including a bit of history (Source: CatholicCulture.org). Second, Jimmy Akin briefly explains the event's significance. Third, Universalis.com provides a very brief primer on the feast as well as links to the day's prayers from the Liturgy of the Hours.

Finally, I wish I could link to the Lectio Divina last night with Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, which was made even better by the Eucharist he celebrated last night with other priests of the Archdiocese of Melbourne. I'd love to blog about what was said but would not do it justice. There was so much content to unpack, even considering the moments of silence and prayer that interspersed the hour. I'm hoping that the Archdiocese will release a video!
