Feast of the Transfiguration
This has always been one of my favorite feasts. Perhaps it is because I feel that Jesus also invites me to go up the mountain with Him. Perhaps it is because I feel there is an intimacy about this encounter of Christ with only three chosen friends to be there to see how Jesus is transfigured before them. And then there is the moment when they "looking up, saw only Jesus."
We are all called to encounter the transfigured, risen Christ. He comes to us and wants us to be with Him. He invites us to go with Him to pray on the mountain.
