Gospel text
Mt 17:1-9
Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them; his face shone like the sun and his clothes became white as light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, conversing with him.
Gospel's Commentary
Today we are getting ready for Holy Week. We follow the Lord’s footsteps: now we witness his Transfiguration. Jesus Christ, for a few moments, shows corporally His divine beauty. The apostles are filled with happiness and Peter says: “If you wish, I will put up three shelters, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah”. -This is like an advancement of what Heaven will be, but before that there is the Cross… It is precisely about this, that Elijah and Moses were talking with Jesus Christ!!
