LIBERA ME, Domine, Iesu Christe, ab omnibus iniquitatis meis et universis malis,
fac me tuis semper inhærere mandatis et a te numquam separari permittas. Amen.

Transfiguring ourselves

Today is the feast of the Transfiguration of Our Blessed Lord : and a good day to consider the transfiguration of our own personalities which is needed before we can reach that union with Him in heaven to which today’s events clearly point.

We are fallible, sinful, and throughly human : but God, through Holy Mother Church, provides us with all the tools that are needed to achieve that transfiguration into shining citizens of heaven – the Sacraments : and most particularly the Most Holy Eucharist, and Penance.

Let us, today, as we celebrate Our Lord showing us so clearly the way he is leading us to heaven, resolve to make better and more frequent use of His Sacraments, and more continually purge our souls by penance, prayer, and reception of Holy Communion, so that we in our turn may be transfigured at our deaths, and follow Him to our heavenly home : an end I wish you all.
