  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 17:1-9)
The Lord Jesus not simply wants us to see his glory He wants to share this magnificence with us. And Jesus demonstrates us the way to the Father's glory: What is the meaning of this mysterious manifestation? God the Heavenly Father also spoke to Jesus and gave his approval: This is my beloved Son; pay attention to him. Jesus possible discussion this momentous decision to go to the cross by Moses and Elijah. The Father glorified his son since he obeyed. The cloud which overshadowed Jesus and his apostles satisfied the vision of the Jews that while the Messiah came the cloud of God's presence would fill the temple again. How much do we neglect God's glory and deeds because we are slumbering spiritually? There are lots of things which can remain our minds asleep to the things of God: Mental lassitude and the "unexamined life" can remain us from thinking things through and facing our misgivings and questions. The life of effortlessness can also hinder us from considering the challenging or worrying demands of Christ. Prejudice can create us blind to amazing new the Lord may have for us. Even sorrow can be a block until we can see past it to the glory of God. Are we religiously awake? Peter, James, and John were advantaged witnesses of the splendor of Christ. We, too, as disciples of Christ are called to be witnesses of his splendor. We are all, by unveiled face, beholding the splendor of the Lord, are being distorted into his likeness from one degree of magnificence to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. The Lord wants to disclose his glory to us, his much-loved disciples. Do we seek his company with faith and respect?
