Malta Minute with the Catechism: The Transfiguration

  • Program #: 42
  • Description: When and how did Jesus allow some of his apostles to see him in his glory? After entrusting to Peter the keys to govern the house of God "“ the Church "“ the Lord began to reveal to his followers that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things, including death but that on the third day, he would be raised from that death. It is during this period, according to the Catholic Catechism, that he takes Peter, James and John up on a high mountain and there unveils his divine glory for a very brief time. His clothing, his face become dazzling with light. He also reveals he must go by way of the Cross in Jerusalem to enter his glory. All the Trinity is present for the transfiguration; the Father in the voice declaring Jesus to be his beloved Son; the Son in Jesus; the Spirit in the cloud that covers Jesus. The transfiguration gives us a window on Jesus' glorious coming and our own transformation from a lowly body to a glorious body like his. This is Peggy Stanton and this has been the Order of Malta's Minute with the Catechism.
