August 6th: Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord (C)
Gospel text
Lk 9:28b-36
Jesus took Peter, John, and James and went up a mountain to pray. While he was praying his face changed in appearance and his clothing became dazzling white. Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is good that we are here; let us make three tents, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”
Gospel's Commentary
Today, while pondering over the Transfiguration, we can sense man's situation in Heaven. It is wonderful to see that, only by looking at the body of Christ in a glorious mood, Peter feels fully happy: he does not miss anything else. Peter’s reaction shows the truest dynamism of love: I am happy because I make you happy; Simon, when seeing Moses and Elijah, not only accepts them instantly, but also loves them immediately (he thinks of putting up a shelter for each one of them). —St. Teresa of Jesus, nun, but Doctor (of the Church) expressed the logic of love in a profound way: “The contentment of pleasing the other exceeds my own contentment”.
