Gospel Reflection: Transfiguration

Here’s a prayer reflection on the transfiguration of Jesus Christ.  It was written by Anne Osdieck.

Reflection on the Gospel
(based on Matthew 17:1-8, Mark 9:2-8, Luke 9:28-36 )

And he was transfigured before them….

In such blinding brightness,
his everyday clothes—
dazzling white
as no eyes
on earth
had ever seen.

Friends
caught a bewildered glimpse
of who he really
was.

O Christ,

take us to the mountain.

Transform
our humdrum lives,
all our doings—
and our very
being

into your
love.
