Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord

 • 05:27 AM Thu Aug 6, 2015

Reading 1 and// DN 7and9-10, 13-14 As I watchedandThrones were set upand the Ancient One took his throne.His clothing was bright as snow,and the hair on his head as white as woolhis throne was flames of fire,with wheels of burning fire.A surging stream of fireflowed out from where he satThousands upon thousands were ministering to him,and myriads upon myriads attended him.The court was convened and the books were opened.As the visions during the night continued, I sawandOne like a Son of man coming,on the clouds of heavenWhen he reached the Ancient Oneand was presented before him,The one like a Son of man received dominion, glory, and kingshipall peoples, nations, and languages serve him.His dominion is an everlasting dominionthat shall not be taken away,his kingship shall not be destroyed. Responsorial Psalm and// PS 97and1-2, 5-6, 9 R. (1a and 9a)The Lord is king, the Most High over all the earth.The LORD is king let the earth rejoicelet the many islands be glad.Clouds and darkness are round about him,justice and judgment are the foundation of his throne.R.The Lord is king, the Most High over all the earth.The mountains melt like wax before the LORD,before the LORD of all the earth.The heavens proclaim his justice,and all peoples see his glory.R.The Lord is king, the Most High over all the earth.Because you, O LORD, are the Most High over all the earth,exalted far above all gods.R.The Lord is king, the Most High over all the earth. Reading 2 and// 2 PT 1:16-19 BelovedandWe did not follow cleverly devised mythswhen we made known to youthe power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,but we had been eyewitnesses of his majesty.For he received honor and glory from God the Fatherwhen that unique declaration came to him from the majestic glory, This is my Son, my beloved, with whom I am well pleased.”We ourselves heard this voice come from heavenwhile we were with him on the holy mountain.Moreover, we possess the prophetic message that is altogether reliable.You will do well to be attentive to it,as to a lamp shining in a dark place,until day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. Alleluia and// MT 17:5C R.Alleluia, alleluia.This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleasedlisten to him.R.Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel and// MK 9and2-10 Jesus took Peter, James, and his brother John,and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves.And he was transfigured before them,and his clothes became dazzling white,such as no fuller on earth could bleach them.Then Elijah appeared to them along with Moses,and they were conversing with Jesus.Then Peter said to Jesus in reply, Rabbi, it is good that we are here!Let us make three tentsandone for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”He hardly knew what to say, they were so terrified.Then a cloud came, casting a shadow over themfrom the cloud came a voice, This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.”Suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyonebut Jesus alone with them.As they were coming down from the mountain,he charged them not to relate what they had seen to anyone,except when the Son of Man had risen from the dead.So they kept the matter to themselves,questioning what rising from the dead meant.
