The Transfiguration of Our Lord August 6

Our Lord took Ss. Peter, James, and John with Him to Mount Thabor. While Jesus prayed, His face became like the sun and his garments became white as snow. Moses and Elias came to talk with Him.

We look for the Savior, our Lord Jesus Christ, Who will reform the body of our lowness, made like to the body of His glory — Chapter

The Imitation of Christ
Oftentimes call to mind the proverb: The eye is not satisfied with seeing: nor is the ear filled with hearing.
After the Transfiguration, our Lord asked His disciples not to tell anyone about the vision they had seen until He should be risen from the dead.
Do you sound a trumpet before you when you are about to do something good or when you have been particularly successful? Imitate our Lord today. Practice the hidden virtues rather than those that call attention. There is less danger of losing the merit for the good you do.
And thy Father Who seeth in secret will repay thee.
