6th August - Feast of the Transfiguration

6th August - Feast of the Transfiguration

Feast of the Transfiguration - Bellini

The Transfiguration is a pivotal moment, the point where human nature meets God: the meeting place for the temporal and the eternal with Jesus himself as the connecting point, the bridge between heaven and earth. Jesus and three of his apostles, Peter, James & John, go to a mountain to pray. Whilst there Jesus shines with bright rays of light. The prophets Moses and Elijah appear next to him and he speaks with them. Jesus is called "Son" by a voice from heaven.
