Scriptural Rosary
Transfiguration of Jesus

"And be not conformed to this world; but be reformed
in the newness of your mind, that you may prove what is the good,
and the acceptable, and the perfect will of God."
-Romans 12:2

Catholic Rosary Myteries The Transfiguration of Jesus is such an important Biblical event that three out of four Gospels recount it's events.

Jesus choose to reveal His divine mission to Peter, James and John.

He revealed Himself in all His glory that was to come after His suffering and death.

Along side Jesus appeared Moses and Elijah. These two Old Testament men are of great significance.

God gave the ten Commandments to the Isrealites through Moses.

Therefore Moses represents the Law.

Elijah, the greatest of the prophet represents all the Prophets.

Jesus is the Messiah as the voice of God the Father proclaims.

He is the fulfillment of the law and the long awaited savior prophesied by the Old Testament Prophets.

  • "And after six days Jesus taketh unto him Peter and James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into a high mountain apart: And he was transfigured before them. And his face did shine as the sun: and his garments became white as snow. And behold there appeared to them Moses and Elias talking with him. And Peter answering, said to Jesus: Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles, one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. And as he was yet speaking, behold a bright cloud overshadowed them. And lo, a voice out of the cloud, saying: This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased: hear ye him.
  • And the disciples hearing, fell upon their face, and were very much afraid. And Jesus came and touched them: and said to them, Arise, and fear not. And they lifting up their eyes saw no one but only Jesus. And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying: Tell the vision to no man, till the Son of man be risen from the dead." -Matthew 17:1-9
The words of God and the significance of Moses, the Law, and Elijah, the Prophet confirmed without a doubt that Jesus truly is the long awaited Messiah.

And yet at this point, Peter clearly didn't fully understand Jesus' mission that He must suffer and die for the sins of humankind.

Catholic Rosary Mysteries

You will only find true and lasting peace on the day you enter Heaven.

You were made for Heaven and that is where your soul longs to be. Kind of like you are a refugee here in this world, this "valley of tears".

As St. Augustine says we are truly restless until we rest in Thee.

Meditating on the Transfiguration of Jesus should increase your desire for holiness and your hope for Heaven.

You may find Heaven, the heart's deepest longing by Peter Kreeft particularly helpful in grasping the concept of Catholic hope of heaven.

The Bible passages used for the Transfiguration of Jesus were taken from the timeless Douay Rheims Catholic Bible

If you are looking for a more modern language version of the Transfiguration of Jesus, our recommendation would be the St. Ignatius Press Bible.

Amen.
