The Transfiguring Theophany

Feast Of The Transfiguration 2021
The treasures of the basilica of St. Mary Major are described because of the feast of Our Lady of the Snow.  Also, St. Sixtus and his companions suffered martyrdom today and the martyrdom of St. Lawrence was prophesied.  Today’s feast of the Transfiguration recalls that moment in Our Lord’s life when He prepared Saints Peter, James and John for what was ahead concerning His Passion and Death by fortifying them with a glimpse of His divinity.  The importance of this  event is brought home to us by its being recorded in all the Gospels and St. Peter mentions it in his epistle as well.  The Blessed Trinity manifested Itself by the Father’s Voice commanding obedience to His Son Whose humanity became as bright as the sun and by the Cloud which showed the Holy Ghost.  The Transfiguration was a chance for Our Lord to rest and to strengthen the Apostles.  This feast also commemorates the miraculous victory in 1456 over the infidels attacking Europe.
