Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord

One like a Son of man coming, on the clouds of heaven; When he reached the Ancient One and was presented before him, The one like a Son of man received dominion, glory, and kingship; all peoples, nations, and languages serve him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that shall not be taken away, his kingship shall not be destroyed.

Just as Jesus was transfigured before his disciples, so we must transform ourselves more and more into Christ, Our Lord. He is the one who should have dominion over our souls. He is the one we should give all glory to in our thoughts, words, and works. He is the one who should have kingship over our lives. We all are called to know, love, and serve Him, His Father, and His Holy Spirit. It is only by becoming manifestations of this Holy Trinity that we can fulfill our purpose, accomplish what God has sent us into the world to do, and return to God clothed in the Light of Christ.

In what ways are we attempting to transform ourselves into Christ? How can we get into the habit of thinking, speaking, and acting like Jesus? What do we do to express God’s dominion and kingship over us and give him glory?

O Lord, transform our souls into yours.
