Homily from the Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord.

Claimed. Respected. Trusted.

Jesus Transfigured on the top of Mount Tabor precedes His journey to Mount Calvary. On Tabor, He is not merely transfigured…He is Claimed, Respected, and Trusted as the beloved Son. We too need the Father’s voice to voice His claim over us, His respecting us, and His entrusting a mission to us.
