Feast of the Transfiguration (EF)


Yesterday was the feast of the transfiguration! On this date, we commemorate the day on which Our Lord revealed His glory to His three chief apostles to strengthen them as He prepared to undergo His Passion.

Ant. Thy lightnings have enlightened the world; the earth shook and trembled.

V. How lovely are Thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts! My soul longs and faints for the courts of the Lord!

V. Glory be...

Visionem quam vidisitis, nemini dixeritis donec a mortuis resurgat Filius hominis.
