  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 17:1-9)
Jesus went to the mountain knowing full well what is going to happen and expected him in Jerusalem – his betrayal, denial and crucifixion. Jesus may be very likely discussed this momentous choice to go to the cross and suffering with Moses and Elijah. God the Father also spoke with Jesus and gave his support: And says “this is my beloved Son; listen to him. The Father glorified his son since he obeyed. The cloud which outshined Jesus and his apostles fulfilled the vision of the Jews that when the Messiah came the cloud of God's presence would fill the temple again. What is the importance of this mysterious appearance?
Jesus is the completion of all the promises made to Abraham and to his holy descendants. He succeeded because he followed his Father's will. Jesus knew that the only way to glory in God's kingdom was by yielding his will to the will of the Father. We hold a glimpse of this glory when Jesus takes three of his disciples to an abandoned place on a high mountain. Jesus often went to a lonely place to pray – to seek loneliness and sanctuary away from the crowds. But on this particular occasion, the Gospel of Luke tells us that when Jesus "was praying, the appearance of his countenance was altered, and his raiment became stunning white." Matthew states merely that Jesus was "transfigured before them".
The Lord Jesus not merely wants us to see his glory - he wants to share this glory among us. And Jesus demonstrate us the way to the Father's glory – He says follow me – obey my words - take the path I have chosen for you and you will receive the blessings of my Father's realm - your name will be written in heaven. Jesus accomplished in his mission because he went to Calvary so that Paradise would be reinstated to us once again. He embraced the cross to get the crown of glory that awaits each of us, if we will pursue in his footsteps. .
